- Homework Statement
- A truck and a car are moving with equal velocity. On applying the brakes both will stop after a certain distance, then assuming both brakes have equal retarding force which one will cover less distance? Or both will cover equal distances?

- Relevant Equations
- ##F=m\frac{dv}{dt}##

If ##F## is constant, then mass is inversely proportional to ##dv/dt##. But ##dv## is constant too. So mass is proportional to ##dt##. More massive the body more time it will take to stop covering more distance. So car will cover less distance. Is my logic right ?
