Today, my class had a dispute between who was right. Two answer keys for this problem was provided, so nobody knows the

Anyways, please help me figure out the

The maximum force that the handles on a grocery bag can withstand and not rip is 250 N. If 20 kg of groceries are lifted from the floor to the table with an acceleration of 5 m/s

Actually, I'm not sure. This is where we had the dispute in class.

F

∑

For the first equation, they did:

F

For me and three people in the class, we probably

thanks

*exact*answer to this problem. Half of my class said 100 N while the others said 298 N or something._{We won't talk about how I wasn't listening to that because I was trying to figure out why we had two answers...}Anyways, please help me figure out the

**true**answer to this problem: Will it, or will it not?

*"is it the force of someone's money dwindling because they bought platform crocs?"*

For the first equation, they did:
