Yes, I meant accelerating, I apologize. I "made" this problem to see what I could do given the accelerationThe OP says the 4 kg object is traveling at 40 m/s^2. Usually, the velocity of an object is given, not its acceleration. Is this how the problem was originally specified? 'Traveling' implies velocity, otherwise, one would say an object is accelerating at X m/s^2.
In specifying a problem, you can't mix cause and affect like this. You can either state the acceleration (and ask for something which can be deduced from that, like position, velocity..) or you can specify forces and let the acceleration be deduced.Yes, I meant accelerating, I apologize.
