## Homework Statement

A chicken and rooster are fighting over a 1 kg string of spaghetti. The chicken pulls with 999 N and Rooster pulls with 1000 N. The net force is 1 N, so relative to the ground, will the spaghetti string accelerate at 1m/s^2 (considering both the chicken and rooster continue to grasp the spaghetti string and friction on the ground is equated into the net force of the spaghetti string)?

## Homework Equations

F=ma

## The Attempt at a Solution

Yes. The string will accelerate at 1m/s^2

vf = at + v0

## The Attempt at a Solution

5m/s^2

## Homework Statement

After 5 seconds, the chicken increases its pull to 1000 N. The net force on the spaghetti string is 0. What is the velocity of the spaghetti string relative to the ground at this time? 0 m/s^2 or 1m/s^2 or 5m/s^2?

## The Attempt at a Solution

5m/s^2
