Only two horizontal forces act on a 3.0 kg body that can move over a frictionless floor. One force is 9.0 N, acting due east, and the other is 8.0 N, acting 62° north of west. What is the magnitude of the body's acceleration?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1332049690832:dw the net force on the body =(98sin62)i^+(8cos62)j^ Apply vector method to find the magnitude of the net force. after it find the acceleration: acceleration=(magnitude of the net force)/mass of the body.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2angle with normal or horizontal? if horizontal:\[8\cos62+90=ma \]&\[N+8\sin62=mg\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i get 1.75m/s^2 but the answer is 2.9 m/s^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@hosein here Normal force will be equal to weight of the body.hence they will be cancel to each other.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2one the force has angle so it has component throgh normal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0straight from the book...you don't consider gravity in this problem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2why we use gravity !we have'nt got friction here so we don't use it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@hosein,yes ,you can also do here but it is not necessary here

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 180deg mins 62degs =118degs so (98cos118)/3=4.25 so (98sin118)/3=1.94 squareroot(4.25^2 + 1.94^2) = wrong answer arrrgh

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh sorry the diagram is wrong , see true diagram here.dw:1332051564007:dw then net force =(98cos62)i^+(8sin62)j^ then follow same way for finding the acceleration. acceleration must be 2.9m/sec^2(about)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ahhh yes he is right...but you forgot to divide by 3 at the end
