1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The maximum force a grocery bag can withstand and not rip is 250N, if 20kg of groceries are lifted from the floor to a table with an acceleration of 5 m/s2, will the sack hold? 2. Relevant equations F= ma W= mg 3. The attempt at a solution 20kg * 9.81m/s2 = 981 N Is that all I have to do, if the bag holds 250N, it will break then cause 981N is applied to the bag, is that right?
