A force of 1 N acts on
(a) a body whose mass is 1 kg and
(b) a body whose weight is 1 N.
Find their respective accelerations.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 7:30 pm ad1c9bdddf
SOLUTION This solution is FREE courtesy of BrainMass!
Acceleration = Force/mass
(a) a = F/m = 1/1 = 1 m/ s^2
(b) Since weight = 1 N, mass = weight/g = (1/9.8) kg
a = 1/ (1/9.8) = 9.8 m/ s^2.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 7:30 pm ad1c9bdddf>
