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;

Substituting into the formula, we have;

Acceleration = 2.8 m/s²
