A small car (mass 380 ) is pushing a large truck (mass 1000 ) due east on a level road. The car exerts a horizontal force of 1580 on the truck. What is the magnitude of the force that the truck exerts on the car?

  1. Remember Newton's third law of motion. The reactionary force on the car would be of the same magnitude i.e. 1580N.

  2. Magnitude = 1580 N from 3rd Law of Motion

    but F itself = -1580 N (opposite direction)
