    Answer:

    Acceleration = 2.8 m/s²

    Explanation:

    Given the following data;

    Mass = 1500 kg

    Net force = 4200 Newton

    To find the truck’s acceleration;

    Newton’s Second Law of Motion states that the acceleration of a physical object is directly proportional to the net force acting on the physical object and inversely proportional to its mass.

    Mathematically, it is given by the formula;

     Acceleration = \frac {Net \; force}{mass}

    Substituting into the formula, we have;

     Acceleration = \frac {4200}{1500}

    Acceleration = 2.8 m/s²
