A small car of mass 985 kg is parked behind a small truck of mass 1551 kg on a level road. The brakes of both the car and the truck are off so that they are free to roll with negligible
friction. A 83 kg woman sitting on the tailgate of the truck shoves the car away by exerting a constant force on the car with her feet. The car accelerates at 0.3 m/s2. What is the acceleration of the truck?
Answer in units of m/s2
