Question

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.

Answer #1

Newton's Law: F = ma.

When they're pointing in the same direction F (which will be the
sum of Fa and Fb) = 12.0 kg *0.800 m/s^2 = 9.6 N.

I.e FA + FB = 9.6 N....(i)

When they're pointing in opposite directions, the sum of the forces
will be FA - FB, and they will equal 12.0 kg * 0.4 m/s^2 = 4.8
N.

I.e FA - FB = 4.8 N......(ii)

So we have the two equations

FA + FB = 9.6

FA - FB = 4.8, which we can solve simultaneously. Adding the two
equations together gives

2FA = 14.4, so FA = 7.2 N.

Substituting this into either one of the equations will give FB =
2.4 N.

Hope this will help you.

Two forces are applied to a tree stump to pull it out of the
ground. Force FA has a magnitude of 2490 newtons and points 32.5°
south of east, while force FB has a magnitude of 3160 newtons and
points due south. Using the component method, find the magnitude
and direction of the resultant force FA + FB that is applied to the
stump. Specify the direction with respect to due east.

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...

Two forces act on a 16-kg object. The first force has a
magnitude of 8.8N and is directed 34.6° north of east. The second
force is 8.0N, 24.9° north of west. What is the magnitude of the
net force on the object? What is the magnitude of the acceleration
of the object?

A 7
kg object is subject to the action of two forces. One of the forces
has a magnitude of 10 N and an easterly direction. Calculate the
magnitude and direction of the other force if we know that the
object is accelerating at 1 m / s2 to the east.

P5.34- A constant force is applied to an object, causing the
object to accelerate at 5 m/s2 .
What will the acceleration be if the force is halved?
What will the acceleration be if the object's mass is
halved?
What will the acceleration be if the force and the object's mass
are both halved?
What will the acceleration be if the force is halved and the
object's mass is doubled?

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.) The force is doubled?
b.) The object's mass is doubled?
c.) The force and the object's mass are both doubled?

A 373-kg boat is sailing 12.0° north of east at a speed of 2.00
m/s. 31.0 s later, it is sailing 39.0° north of east at a speed of
4.00 m/s. During this time, three forces act on the boat: a 31.9-N
force directed 12.0° north of east (due to an auxiliary engine), a
20.8-N force directed 12.0° south of west (resistance due to the
water), and (due to the wind). Find the (a) the magnitude and (b)
direction of...

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
