Question

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?

Answer #1

Note that the direction of the 7.4N force is 64⁰ north of west,
which means 26⁰ anticlockwise from north.

x component of 6.4N force = 6.4N

y component of 6.4N force = 0

x component of 7.4N force = -7.4cos(64⁰) = -3.24N

y component of 7.4N force = 7.4sin(64⁰) = 6.65N

Total x component = 6.4 + (-3.24) = 3.16N

Total y component = 0 + 6.65 = 6.65N

Magnitude of force = √(3.16² + 6.65²) = 7.36N

Since F=ma, a = F/m

a = 7.36/1.2 = 6.14 m/s²

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.

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.

Three forces are acting on a stationary object. Force A is 360N acting at 64 degrees North of East. Force B is 280N acting at 40 degrees West of North and Force C of 420N acting at -150 degrees. If the mass of the object is 100 kg and the coefficient of friction is 0.44 determine the velocity of the object after 8 seconds (its response requires a direction).

A 14.8 kg object is on a horizontal surface. Two forces act on
the object. Force 1 = (160 N, 145 °), Force 2 = (90 N, 350 °).
Calculate the acceleration of the object.

The above free body diagram, the forces are acting on a 4.70 kg
object. The x-axis is tilted up from the horizontal by
39.5 degrees. The magnitudes of the three forces are given
by:
Force F1: 77.0 N
Force F2: 74.0 N
Force F3: 66.0 N.
What is the magnitude of the acceleration of the object?
