If a Mack truck and Honda Civic have a headon collision, upon which vehicle is the impact
force greater and which vehicle experiences
the greater acceleration?
I know they have same force.

  • HELP! -

    Please help!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Physics -

    the force from the bigger truck overwhems the small force, and the net force is in the diretion of the Mack Truck. If they do not stick together, the honda has the greater acceleration, as it has the greatest change in velocity.
