Homework Help: Force and Motion,

  1. Mar 10, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    What force values go in the blanks on the horizontal scale?
    The figure (attached as an image) shows an acceleration-versus-force graph for a 600 g object.

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    I was thinking from F=ma that:
    a) F=5X600 = 3000N
    b) F=10X600 = 6000N

    But my answer is definitely not being accepted by the computer so i must be doing something wrong. Any ideas?

    I got it... =)

    After much trial and error i realized it. Its in Grams should i should have been multiplying by 0.6 NOT 600

    I'm sure i'll be back here soon though. Thanks!
