# Calculating Acceleration of Loaded Truck, Half-Loaded Truck, and Empty Truck

## Loaded Truck:

**The acceleration of the loaded truck:**The acceleration of the loaded truck can be calculated using the equation:

**a = (F/m) = (82N/2500kg) = 0.032 m/s²**. This means that the loaded truck requires 82 N of force to accelerate at 0.032 m/s² for 60 seconds in order to reach the velocity of 2 m/s.

## What is acceleration?

**Acceleration is a change in the speed or direction of an object’s motion.**It is measured in meters per second squared (m/s²) and is caused by an unbalanced force acting on the object.

## Half-Loaded Truck:

**The acceleration of the half-loaded truck:**The acceleration of the half-loaded truck can be calculated using the equation:

**a = (F/m) = (66N/2000kg) = 0.033 m/s²**. This means that the half-loaded truck requires 66 N of force to accelerate at 0.033 m/s² for 60 seconds in order to reach the velocity of 2 m/s.

## Empty Truck:

**The acceleration of the empty truck:**The acceleration of the empty truck can be calculated using the equation:

**a = (F/m) = (50N/1500kg) = 0.033 m/s²**. This means that the empty truck requires 50 N of force to accelerate at 0.033 m/s² for 60 seconds in order to reach the velocity of 2 m/s.

What is the acceleration of the loaded truck, half-loaded truck, and empty truck?

The acceleration of the loaded truck is 0.032 m/s², the half-loaded truck is 0.033 m/s², and the empty truck is 0.033 m/s².
