Question

A large ship with mass 1.0×108 kg is being pushed by two tugboats. One is pushing with a force of 6.0×105 N due north. The other is pushing with a force of 6.5×105 N, 20° west of north. What is the direction and magnitude of the acceleration of the large ship? Assume no other forces are acting on it.

Answer #1

Mass is

The north component of the force is

The west component of the force is

The direction of the force is

**Hence the direction of acceleration is**
**also**
**west** **of north.**

The magnitude of acceleration is

Only two horizontal forces act on a 1.2 kg body. One force is
6.4 N, acting due east, and the other is 7.4 N, acting 64° north of
west. What is the magnitude of the body's acceleration?

Two forces are acting on an object of 10 kg. Force 1 is 10 N
pointing north. Force 2 is 20 N pointing west. What would be the
magnitude and direction of the acceleration of the particle?

Two tugboats pull a disabled container-ship loaded to 40,000
metric tons (40 million kg). Each tug exerts a constant force of
1.80×106 N , one at an angle 12.0 ∘ west of north, and
the other at an angle 12.0 ∘ east of north, as they pull the ship
0.880 km northward at constant 6 m/s.
A. What is the total work done to the ship by the two tugboat
Forces? in mega joules
B. What is the container-ship's Kinetic...

1.) A box with a mass of 5 kg only has three forces acting on
it:
One force of 16 N due East.
One force of 24 N due South.
One force of 39 N due East
What is the magnitude of the box's acceleration, in
m/s2?
Write the number and not the units.
2.) A box with a mass of 10 kg only has two forces acting on
it:
One force of 15 N due East.
One force of...

(1) Only two horizontal forces act on a 3.0 kg body that can
move over a frictionless floor. One force is 9.0 N, acting due
east, and the other is 8.8 N, acting 52° north of west. What is the
magnitude of the body's acceleration?
(2) Two horizontal forces act on a 1.8 kg chopping block that
can slide over a frictionless kitchen counter, which lies in an
xy plane. One force is F1 =...

Two forces act on a 20.0-kg object. The first force has a
magnitude of 60.0 N and is directed 25.0° north of east. The second
force is 32.0 N, 40.0° north of west. Determine the direction of
acceleration of the object.

Two forces are acting on a 2.0 kg object that moves with
acceleration 7.0 m/s2 in the positive
y-direction. If one of the forces acts in the positive
x-direction and has magnitude of 18 N, what is the
magnitude of the other force (in N)?

1.
Aoife is pushing on a large box, which has a mass of 15 kg. The
large box, in turn, pushes against a smaller box, which has a mass
of 5 kg. Aoife pushes with a force of 160 N. The bottoms of the
boxes are perfectly frictionless, but Aoife's shoes don't slip on
the ground at all. Find the contact force between the boxes.
2.
Aoife gets in an elevator with the two boxes from the first
question stacked...

A stationary box of mass 9.5 kg is being pushed by a force 12.9
N at an angle θ = 31.2o with respect to the horizontal.
The coefficient of static friction between box and surface is
μs= 0.30. Calculate the magnitude of the MAXIMUM
POSSIBLE static friction force which can be generated, to 2
s.f.

Two forces FA and FB are applied to an object whose mass is 12.0
kg. The larger force is FA. When both forces point due east, the
object's acceleration has a magnitude of 0.800 m/s2. However, when
FA points due east and FB points due west, the acceleration is
0.400 m/s2, due east. Find the magnitude of FA and the magnitude of
FB.
