Question #943

In the absence of a gravitational field, you
could determine the mass of an object (of
unknown composition) by?

Expert's answer

Using the second Newton's law we have

F = ma,

so if we know the force acting on the body and its acceleration, we always

can determine the mass of the object as the ratio of them:

m = F/a.

F = ma,

so if we know the force acting on the body and its acceleration, we always

can determine the mass of the object as the ratio of them:

m = F/a.
