Answer:

#1.#

#14625"kg.m/s"#

#2.#

#40125"kg.m/s"#

#3#.

#(a)#

#-585"N"#

#(b)#

#-1605"N"#

Explanation:

#1.#

Momentum = mass x velocity

#:.M_1=975xx15=14625"kg.m/s"#

#2.#

#:.M_2=2675xx15=40125"kg.m/s"#

#3.#

The acceleration is the change in velocity/time.

#a=(0-15)/25#

Force = mass x acceleration.

So for the 1st truck:

#F_1=975xx(-(15)/(25))=-585"N"#

So for the 2nd truck:

#F_2=2675xx(-(15)/(25))=-1605"N"#

The minus sign means this is a braking force.
