Answer to Question #18822 in Mechanics | Relativity for John
A 30 kg block on a frictionless surface experiences two perpendicular forces in the x and y directions. If the force in the x direction is 60 N, and the force in the y direction is 150 N, find the acceleration in the x-direction, the y-direction, and the net resultant acceleration.
acceleration in the x-directiona_x = F_x/m = (60 N)/(30 kg) = 2 m/s^2; acceleration in the y-direction a_y = F_y/m = (150 N)/(30 kg) = 5 m/s^2; net resultant acceleration a = sqrt((a_x)^2 + (a_y)^2) = sqrt(2^2 + 5^2) m/s^2 = sqrt(29) m/s^2 = 5.385 m/s^2.
I have no more assignments.
Thank you for all the help! With 19 credit hours, their is always one class that hits the back burner, with your help i was able to get a B in this class and am going to Walk on graduation.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
