Unformatted text preview: acting on the crate and it will accelerate. Therefore, the crate will continually speed up. Exercises 8. This is an application of Newton’s second law of motion. We start with the basic equation in the form that we have memorized, manipulate it to solve for the unknown variable, and then plug in numbers to obtain our numerical answer. 2 2 6000 N kg m/s 0.1 = 0.1 m/s 60,000 kg kg net net F ma F a m = × = = = 14. This is an application of Newton’s second law of motion. Once again we start with the basic equation. We solve it for the unknown and then plug in the numerical values. 2 2 2 24 N kg m/s 40 = 40 kg 0.6 m/s m/s net net F ma F m a = × = = =...
