How Much Force is Needed?-Part One.

  1. Jan 9, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    How much force is needed to accelerate a 3.0 object at 5000 g's?


    2. Relevant 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:

    Assuming the object is 3 grams, yes.
