course, the same result comes from considering the second figure ((10.0 N)/(4.00 kg) = 2.50 m/s 2 ). (b) F a = (12.0 kg)(2.50 m/s 2 ) = 30.0 N 52. Both situations involve the same applied force and the same total mass, so the accelerations must be the same in both figures. (a) The (direct) force causing B to have this acceleration in the first figure is twice as big

Unformatted text preview: as the (direct) force causing A to have that acceleration. Therefore, B has the twice the mass of A. Since their total is given as 12.0 kg then B has a mass of m B = 8.00 kg and A has mass m A = 4.00 kg. Considering the first figure, (20.0 N)/(8.00 kg) = 2.50 m/s 2 . Of...
