Answer:

V = 1.67 m/s

Explanation:

Given the following data;

Force = 1000 N

Mass = 3000 kg

Time = 5 seconds

To find the speed of the truck;

First of all, we would find the acceleration

Force = mass * acceleration

1000 = 3000 * acceleration

Acceleration = 1000/3000

Acceleration = 0.333 m/s²

Using the first equation of motion, we would determine the speed;

V = u + at

Initial velocity is equal to zero because the truck starts from rest.

V = 0 + 0.333*5

V = 1.67 m/s
