Homework Help: Calculate speed with Force/mass/Fg?

  1. May 8, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data:
    Calculate the speed using just the given force (the force which moves forward), 5,0N
    The mass 0,35kg
    And the gravity: 2,94N

    How would this be done?

    F = m*a

    Determine the direction that gravity affects and then determine the overall acceleration.

    The rest is just kinematics.
