Imagine a fender bender between a large truck and a small car. During the impact,


Choose one answer.
a. the truck exerts a greater amount of force on the car than the car exerts on the truck
b. the car exerts a greater amount of force on the truck than the truck exerts on the car
c. neither object exerts a force on the other
d. the truck exerts a force on the car, but the car does not exert a force on the truck
e. the truck exerts the same amount of force on the car as the car exerts on the truck

    no way a - third law action equal and opposite to reaction

    no way b, same as a

    no way c, they bumped

    no way d, same reason as a and b

    e, finally Newton's Third Law !!!
