Hw #3 on Newton’s 2nd law of Motion
Directions – List all the variables, write the correct formula, substitute
the numbers, solve the problem and use the correct label.
Formulas to use:
F = MxA
M = F/A
A = F/M
W = MxG
M = W/G
G = W/M

2. A 5 kg mass is accelerated across a smooth surface a 54 m/s². What force
caused this acceleration?
3. A force of 2100 N accelerates a car down a hill at a rate of 3.5 m/s². What is
the mass of the car?

Using this additional formula, solve the following Net force problems below:
Net force = Applied force – Opposing force (Nf = Af – Of)
9. An applied force of 74 N is used to move an 8 kg mass. The opposing
forces equal 10 N.
A. What is the net force that moves the mass?
B. What is the acceleration of the mass due to this force?
A. What net force gives an acceleration of 12 m/sec² to a 950 kg boat?
B. If the opposing force to overcome water friction and air resistance was
700 N, what was the applied force used to move the boat?
