Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.7The accelleration of the bolt with respect to the train is just the negative of the accelleration of the train (2.6 m/s^2) since the velocity of the bolt (relative to the earth) does not change once it is dropped.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.7The acceleration of the bolt with reapect to the earth is g ( the acceleration due to gravity) the same as if it were dropped from a standstill....
