# Question

(a) A horizontal force acts on an object on a frictionless horizontal surface. If the force is halved and the mass of the object is doubled, the acceleration will be (1) four times, (2) two times, (3) one-half, (4) one-fourth as great.

(b) If the acceleration of the object is 1.0 m/s2, and the force on it is doubled and its mass is halved, what is the new acceleration?

(b) If the acceleration of the object is 1.0 m/s2, and the force on it is doubled and its mass is halved, what is the new acceleration?

Two forces act on a 5.0-kg object sitting on a friction-less horizontal surface. One force is 30 N in the +x-direction, and the other is 35 N in the –x-direction. What is the acceleration of the object? A rocket is far away from all planets and stars, so gravity is not a consideration. It is using its rocket engines to accelerate upward with an acceleration a = 9.80 m/s2. On the floor of the main deck is a crate (object ...In a pole-sliding game among friends, a 90-kg man makes a total vertical drop of 7.0 m while gripping the pole which exerts and upward force (call it Fp) on him. Starting from rest and sliding with a constant acceleration, ...A lab notebook sits on a table 0.75 m above the floor. Your lab partner tells you the book has zero potential energy, and another student says it has 8.0 J of potential energy. Who is correct? You want to decrease the kinetic energy of an object as much as you can. You can do so by either reducing the mass by half or reducing the speed by half. Which option should you pick, and why?Post your question
