Newton's Law of Motion - Acceleration

The red box has a mass of 20 kg and the blue box has a mass of 11.1 kg and the Force is 220 N. To the nearest tenth of a m/s2, what is the acceleration of the combination?

To the nearest newton what force does the blue box exert on the red box?


Solution Preview

Force can produce acceleration given by A = Force/mass

for this case, the acceleration of the system would be = A = ...

Solution Summary

The acceleration of a block is discovered using classical mechanics. The force used to accelerate the block is found.
