Suppose that a constant force is applied to an object. Newton's Second Law of Motion states that the acceleration of the object varies inversely with its mass. A certain force acting upon an object with mass 2kg produces an acceleration of 10ms^2 . If the same force acts upon another object whose mass is 5kg , what would this object's acceleration be?
Use the initial mass and acceleration to find the Force. Then use that force with the new mass to find the acceleration
mmk so if i'm understanding right then i would multiply the original mass by the acceleration and then use that with the second mass to find my answer?
\[\text{1 Newton}={1 \space kg*m \over s^2}\]Pay attention to your units. If your units don't work out right then you know you are wrong. Also the units will help you with a problem if you don't know what to do. Units work just like fractions, in the way that they can cancel.
ok thanks =) i'll work it out
