Mass - the acceleration decreases as mass increases (see fig 4 pg 47)
Force - acceleration increases as force increases. (see fig 4 pg 47)
Newton's 2nd Law Force= mass x acceleration OR F= ma m=F/a a=F/m
Mike's car, which has a mass of 1,000 kg, is out of gas. Mike is trying to push the car to a gas station, and he makes the car go 0.05 m/sec 2 . Using Newton's Second Law, compute how much force Mike is applying to the car.
Force= mass x acceleration Or F= ma Mass=1000 kg Acceleration= 0.05 m/sec 2
F= ma F= (1,000 kg) x 0.05 m/sec 2 F= 50 kg . m/sec 2 or F= 50 N (1 Newton= kg x m/sec 2)
