If a loaded truck that can accelerate at 1 m/s2 loses its load and has four-fifths of its original mass, what acceleration can it attain if the same driving force acts on it?

  • physics -

    acceleration = net force/mass
    acceleration = 1/.8(4/5)
    acceleration = 1.25 m/s^2

    hope this helps!!!!
