Answer to Question #947 in Mechanics | Relativity for Claire
A force is applied to a 2.6 kg mass and produces 5.9 m/s[sup]2[/sup] acceleration.What acceleration would be produced by
the same force applied to a 14.9 kg mass?
Firstly let's find the force using the second Newton's law:
F = ma = 2.6kg * 5.9 m/s2 = 15.34 N.
Acceleration would be:
a = F/m' = 15.34 / 14.9 = 1.03 m/s2
