I am trying to help my lil bro (12 yo) with some physics. I've never been good in physics and now it's been more then 10 years that i've been to elementary school.
I've helped him with some stuff but there's this one question that i don't understand and there's very little material on it in his book. It's about a dynamometer and weight. It asks if we put an object that weighs 0.5kg in the dynamometer what will the weight be?
The Attempt at a Solution
Logicaly i assume that it would be 0.5kg but i am not sure. Perhaps the result must be in N(ewton)?
We haven't tried the F = 0.5kg * 10 N/kg, formula. As i am not sure if it's right in this case with dynamometer.
Should the result be in KG or N, or something else?
He has a test in a couple of days and it would really help him/us.
