Question #947

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?

Expert's answer

Firstly let's find the force using the second Newton's law:

F = ma = 2.6kg * 5.9 m/s^{2} = 15.34 N.

Acceleration would be:

a = F/m' = 15.34 / 14.9 = 1.03 m/s^{2}

F = ma = 2.6kg * 5.9 m/s

Acceleration would be:

a = F/m' = 15.34 / 14.9 = 1.03 m/s
