A barrel of oil with a mass of 65 kg is rolled down a 1.2 m ramp. Due to a constant force exerted on it, the barrel reaches a velocity of 4.2 m/s just on leaving the ramp. Find the constant force on the barrel while it is on the ramp and express your answer in the form of a sentence relating force, change in velocity, distance, and direction.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

what would the formula be for this question? :\

Mass: 65kg

Velocity: 4.2m/s

acceleration: 1.2m x 9.81m/s = 11.77m/s
