Two similar trucks are moving with a same velocity on a road. One of them is loaded while the other is empty. Which of the two will require a larger force to stop it?

Expert Answer:

Force is directly proportionally to mass. Therefore, the loaded truck will have more momentum then the empty truck and hence a large force will be required by the loaded truck to stop it.
