A small car of mass 831 kg is parked behind
a small truck of mass 1553 kg on a level road.
The brakes of both the car and the truck are
off so that they are free to roll with negligible
friction. A 86 kg woman sitting on the tailgate
of the truck shoves the car away by exerting
a constant force on the car with her feet. The
car accelerates at 0.2 m/s2.

What is the acceleration of the truck?
Answer in units of m/s2

What is the magnitude of the force exerted on
the car?
Answer in units of N
