i know that acceleration and force are similar and dependent on one another...but are they always the same and are their graphs always identical??? or are they just proportional???(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Also, anyone know how answer this question:

two forces are applied to a cart with two different spring scales (whats a spring scale?) the spring scale F1 reads 2.0 N. the cart moves toward the left with acceleration towards the left of 2.50 m/s/s. what does spring scale F2 read?

i know i need to use proportions to solve this...or at least i think so...but i dont know where to start...thanx for all ur help in advance guys
