Suppose that the truck's mass is 4000 kilograms, and the car's mass is 2000 kilograms. Assume that the truck slows down by 5 m/s during the collision. Based off of your intuition, how much speed does the car gain during the collision? (Assume the logic that the car reacts more in the collision, and note that the truck has twice the mass of the car). Explain your intuitive reasoning.
