Unit 2: Newton's Laws of Motion

Problem Set A

 

Problem #6:

Suppose that a force F gives an object with a mass of m an acceleration of 70 m/s/s. If the force were increased by a factor of 3.2, and the mass were increased by a factor of 7.2, then the new acceleration would be ____ m/s/s.

 

 

Information about the use of Newton's second law as a guide to thinking about how an alteration in a variable will effect the acceleration can be found online at The Physics Classroom.
