In summary, the truck pushed the mechanic 40 ft and he does not know if it was the weight of the truck or the impact that caused him to sustain the injuries.

I think the best you may be able to do is estimate the max possible force based on the slope and weight of the truck, which would be 7/100*80,000=5,600. That seems awfully high, though.

The impact from an 80K lb truck can be calculated by using the formula F = m x a, where F is the force of impact, m is the mass of the truck in pounds, and a is the acceleration of the truck in feet per second squared. By plugging in the values for the mass and acceleration, you can calculate the force of impact in pounds.

The average impact force of an 80K lb truck can vary depending on factors such as speed, road conditions, and type of impact. However, using the formula F = m x a, the average impact force can be calculated by dividing the force of impact by the distance traveled during impact.

The impact from an 80K lb truck is significantly greater than that of smaller vehicles due to its larger mass. For example, a collision between an 80K lb truck and a passenger car would result in a much higher impact force on the car compared to a collision between two cars of equal mass.

There are several measures that can be taken to lessen the impact of an 80K lb truck, such as installing safety features like crash barriers and rumble strips on roads, implementing speed limits for trucks, and enforcing strict regulations for truck drivers to prevent accidents.

The impact from an 80K lb truck can have negative effects on the environment, such as air and noise pollution, and damage to roads and infrastructure. This is why it is important for trucking companies to implement eco-friendly practices and for governments to regulate and monitor the trucking industry to minimize its impact on the environment.
