If a force accelerates 4.5 kg at 40 m/s ^2, that same force would accelerate 18 kg how much?
Force equals mass times acceleration! (F= ma)
If m= 4.5 kg and a= 10 m/s2, what is F?
Now, using that same force, but m= 18kg, solve F= ma for a.
A slightly more sophisticated method is to say m1a1= F= m2a2.
That is (4.5)(10)= (18)(a).
Thanks again for the instruction, that made more sense to me. Thanks in advance.
Separate names with a comma.
