Question description

Newtons 3rd law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This means that if a bug were to collide with a truck on the highway they would both exert the same force on each other. Let us state that on collision the force the bug and truck exert on each other is about 0.1 N. Assuming the mass of the bug is 0.0001 kg, and the mass of the truck is 10,000 kg, find the acceleration of each after the collision. Use your answer to explain why, despite exerting equal forces, the bug simply becomes a smear on the truck's windshield
