Newtons applied to a constant velocity

  1. Oct 8, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A 1.0 kg object, moving with a constant velocity of 2.0 m/s, is acted upon by a force of 15 N in the direction of the motion for 6.0 s. What is the velocity (in meters/second) of the object at the end of this time?


    2. Relevant equations

    I was thinking of using, V = Vo + at but at the same time it doesnt make sense to me in finding the solution



    help!

    You are thinking correctly. You are trying to find V, you know V0, and you know t. You now just need to find 'a' from Newton's 2nd law.
