Your gocart breaks down right before the end of a race,so you have to push it over the finish line. The go cart has a mass of 85kg.
B. How much force must you apply to give the go cart an accelertion of 9.0m/s
C. If you push with a force of 350N what is the acceleration of the cart?
D. Later you are driving your friends go cart.if his cart has an acceleration of 5.5m/s^2 and the carts engine is applying a forward force of 720N what is the mass of his go cart ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes! escept for B, you used a=0.9m/s^2 it should be 9m/s^2 also, you could check the units for C and D, they should be m/s^2 and Kg. respectively
