(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find the mass of the body when:

upward force is 10N

downward force unknown (mg N)

acceleration 5ms^-2 downwards

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

W=mg

3. The attempt at a solution

Need to work out the resultant force?? Then find the mass from there...

Thank you!
