96. REASONING The magnitude F Σ of the net force acting on the kayak is given by Newton’s second law as F ma Σ = (Equation 4.1), where m is the combined mass of the person and kayak, and a is their acceleration. Since the initial and final velocities, v 0 and v , and the displacement x are known, we can employ one of the equations of kinematics from Chapter 2 to find the acceleration. SOLUTION Solving Equation 2.9

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
