1. Homework Statement
How much force is needed to accelerate a 3.0 object at 5000 g's?


2. Homework Equations
F=ma


3. The Attempt at a Solution

I converted units so that I could get an answer in Newtons.
M=0.003 kg
A=49033 m/s^2

F=0.003 kg*49033 m/s^2=147 Newtons.

Could someone please confirm this answer?

Thanks! :smile:
