Force = (mass in kg)x(acceleration in m.s^-2)

O

3000 N

Drag forces are trying to slow the car down. Engine power to the wheels generates force that equals the drag, and keeps the car travelling at a constant speed. The sum of all forces on the car are zero, which is why it is not accelerating or decelerating.

it will stay at rest until acted upon by an outside force

Force = Mass x Acceleration Force = 5 x 2 Force = 10N (Newtons)

A mass doesn't produce a force by accelerating. It needs a force to make it accelerate. The force it needs is (mass) x (acceleration). In order to accelerate a 10 kg mass at 2.5 meters per sec2, you need a force of 25 newtons.

Since the book is not accelerating, we know that the net force on it is zero.

force=mass*accelaration force/mass=accelaration 4/2=2m/s2

An accelerating force is the force which causes accelerated motion.

Anything that is accelerating or decelerating because it is only balanced when something is moving at a constant speed.

F = m A = (2) (40) = 80 newtons

Force = mass * acceleration ( acceleration's unit is m/s2 ) Force = (10 kg)(4 m/s2) = 40 Newtons ==========

6 newtons, so it keeps accelerating. As it does, the air resistance increases until it reaches 10 newtons so then the net force is zero and then the fall continues at constant speed (the terminal velocity).

Any force can be expressed in Newtons.
