The formula for calculating mass is m = F/a, where m is the mass, F is the force applied, and a is the acceleration.
Mass is directly proportional to force and inversely proportional to acceleration. This means that as force increases, mass also increases, but as acceleration increases, mass decreases.
To solve for mass in a trolley question, you need to know the force applied (in this case, 3.0N) and the acceleration of the trolley. You can then plug those values into the formula m = F/a to find the mass.
The SI unit for mass is kilograms (kg). In some cases, mass may also be measured in grams (g) or metric tons (t).
No, mass cannot be negative. It is a measure of the amount of matter in an object, and matter cannot have a negative value.
