An object with a mass of 2.0 kg accelerates 2.0 m/s 2 when an unknown force is applied to it. What is the amount of the force? ______________________ 2. An object with a mass of 5.0 kg accelerates 8.0 m/s 2 when an unknown force is applied to it. What is the amount of the force? ______________________ 3. An object with a mass of 1500 g (grams) accelerates 10.0 m/s 2 when an unknown force is applied to it. What is the amount of the force? ______________________ force force f = m•a m = f/a a = f/m
4. An object with a mass of 6.0 kg accelerates 4.0 m/s 2 when an unknown force is applied to it. What is the amount of the force? ______________________ 5. An object with a mass of 7.5 kg accelerates 8.3 m/s 2 when an unknown force is applied to it. What is the amount of the force? ______________________ 6. An object with a mass of 2000 g accelerates 8.3 m/s 2 when an unknown force is applied to it. What is the amount of the force? ______________________ In the second set of problems below, you will be given the force applied to an object and the acceleration of that object, and then will need to solve for mass, using the equation m = F/a. In other words, you will need to divide the force by the acceleration to calculate the mass. Show your work in the space provided. sure to state the proper units in your answer, and state each answer to the nearest tenth of a unit, to match the accuracy of the measurements. 7. An object accelerates 3.0 m/s 2 when a force of 6.0 newtons is applied to it. What is the mass of the object? ___________________________ 8. An object accelerates 12.0 m/s 2 when a force of 6.0 newtons is applied to it. What is the mass of the object? ___________________________ 9. An object accelerates 5.0 m/s 2 Be
