Determine mass and acceleration

  1. Oct 2, 2006 #1
    A question was posed to me and for the life of me I cannot figure this out.

    A bowling ball is lifted with a constant force of 82 N and has an acceleration of a. A second bowling ball is lifted with a constant force of 92 N and has an acceleration of 2a. Find the mass and acceleration of the balls (the masses are assumed to be the same).

    What does Newton's 2nd law tell you? What forces act on the bowling ball?
