# Answer to Question #5390 in Mechanics | Relativity for Rebecca

Question #5390
4 students are pulling on the same object in 4 different directions.One student pulls with a force of 5.5N to the west, the second student oulls with a force 8.75N to the north, the third student pulls with a force of 10.15 to the south and the fourth student pulls with a force of 4.0 to the east. IF the objext has a mass of 0.kg find: A) Fnet x B)Fnext y C)Fnet D) Acceleration
8.75N North

& 10.15N South

A) Fnet x
As we see from the flowchart,
Fnetx = 4.0N - 5.5N = -1.5N

B)Fnext y
Fnexty = 8.75N - 10.15N = -1.40N

C)Fnet
Fnet = sqrt(Fnetx&sup2; + Fnety&sup2;) = sqrt(1.5&sup2;+1.40&sup2;) = sqrt(4.21) &asymp; 2,0518N

D) Acceleration
Let&#039;s use the second Newton&#039;s law:
Fnet = ma ==&gt; a = Fnet/m = 2,0518N/0.
As the object has zero mass by definition, the acceleration is unlimited.
