## When a large truck collides with a small car which vehicle experiences a larger force the truck or the car?

Both vehicles experience the same magnitude of force; there- fore the lightweight car experiences the greater acceleration. The greater force exerted on the truck gives it the greater ac- celeration.

Which vehicle feels the larger force due to the collision?

When two vehicles moving at the same rate of speed are involved in a collision, the vehicle that weighs less will take the greater impact; the larger and heavier the vehicle, the greater the energy and momentum.

Which vehicle experiences the greater force of impact?

since the mass of the truck is greater than that of the car, it will experience a greater force of impact. Mass of the truck is greater than that of the car. Thus, the truck will experience a greater change in momentum as compared to the car.

### Why do you think the damaging effect of collision between a car and a truck will be greater in the car?

When a truck and a car collide, the impact of the crash will be considerably greater in the car, because the mass of the truck is so much larger, and therefore will take much longer to stop. This means that the G force in the car will be much higher as it goes from moving to a full stop in a shorter period of time.

Why is the force on a vehicle in a crash larger if the vehicle is moving faster before the crash?

If you are driving at a faster speed and have an accident that causes you to come to a sudden stop when hitting the other object, the momentum force will have much more forceful impact and therefore more damage to your vehicle and more injuries to your body.

Why is car likely to suffer more damage than the truck?

(d) The car is likely to suffer more damage than the truck, as it is lighter. The acceleration, i.e., change in velocity of car is more than that of the truck.

## Which vehicle is pushed further and why?

Answer: (1) On collision, both the car and the truck experience the same force as action and reaction are equal. and mass of car is less than the mass of truck, therefore, acceleration of car is more than the acceleration of the truck. (4) Car is pushed farther than the truck, because car is lighter than truck.

When a large heavy truck collides with a passenger car?

When a large heavy truck collides with a passenger car, large momentum of the truck is transferred to car and small momentum of car is transferred to car and small momentum of car is transferred to truck. So, the occupants of the car are more likely to hurt than the truck driver.

What is the momentum of the truck before collision?

In the collision between the truck and the car, total system momentum is conserved. Before the collision, the momentum of the truck is 60000 kg*m/s and the momentum of the car is 0 kg*m/s; the total system momentum is 60000 kg*m/s.

### What happens when a car and a truck collide?

What happens to the car and truck after the collision?

Truck Rear Ends Car When a collision occurs in an isolated system, the total momentum of the system of objects is conserved. The total system kinetic energy before the collision equals the total system kinetic energy after the collision.

Why do trucks hit the ground with the same force?

They both experience the same force because of the impact, due to the Newton’s third law, like you say. I think the question is not clear enough. If you assume there is no friction between the trucks and the ground, then you can use momentum considerations.

## Why is a motorcycle in a crash with a large SUV?

Explain, using all 3 of Newton’s Laws of Motion, why a motorcycle in a crash with a large SUV is more devastating than a large SUV in a crash with a large SUV. An object at rest will stay at rest and an object in motion will remain in motion in a straight line at a constant speed unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

Which will experience larger force – the truck or the car?

I am confused about the answer which is coming that truck will experience larger force. But Newton’s Third Law of motion says that ‘to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction’. So the force experienced by the truck should be same to that experienced by the car, but negative, isn’t it? Please help.

Is it safer to be in the bigger truck in a collision?

In a head-on collision the forces on the two vehicles are constrained to be the same by Newton’s third law. But from both Newton’s second law and the work-energy principle it becomes evident that it is safer to be in the bigger truck.
