Question

# A car and a truck are pushed with the same sufficient force, which one will accelerate more?

- Car
- Truck
- They both accelerate equally
- Both do not move

Hint:

### m∝1/a

## The correct answer is: Car

- F= ma
- m=F/a or m∝1/a (F is equal for both)
- Since, the force is constant and mass is indirectly proportional to acceleration.
- A car will accelerate more as it has less mass than a truck.
