Consider the collisions between a car and a truck whose weight is much heavier than the car (M ≫ m). Friction is so small that it can be ignored. If they are both moving at the same speed when they collide, what best describes the size (or magnitude) of the forces ...

During a car crash a 65kg person's head goes from traveling at 50km h-1 to stationary in 0.15s. (a)What is the magnitude of the average net force acting on the head of a person with a 4.5kg head? (b)How does this compare with the weight force acting on the person?
