Help please! A large truck and a small car have a head-on collision. Which scenario is true? The truck exerts a greater force on the car than the car exerts on the truck. The car exerts a greater force on the truck than the truck exerts on the car. The force that the truck exerts on the car and the force that the car exerts on the truck are the same magnitude. (I feel like they would be equal due to Newton's Third Law, but wouldn't the truck have more force? And I think it depends on the speed, but this question doesn't specify so I'm assuming they're equal.)

C will be the correct answer. ignore the previous equation as speed not given

@arindameducationusc So it would be the third option then?

yes third option. The small car will exert an equal and opposite force on the truck. That's what will force one of the vehicles to bounce off to the side - otherwise the truck would plow right through the car.
