All images uploaded for this page must start with the string "Gp5_chapter#_" so the image 16-38.jpg associated with chapter 16 should be uploaded as Gp5_16_16-38.jpg. This way we can avoid conflicts in the image directory, and we can find images easily.

## Problems

### 1. What is the weight of a 3.4 kg mass?

F = ma

Weight = force

F = 3.4 x 9.8 = 33.32 N

### 2. What mass has a weight of 720. N?

F = ma

F/a = m

720 N/9.81 m/s = 73.4 m/s

### 3. Bob must exert 240. N of force on a 980. Kg car to move it at a constant speed up an incline. (The frictional and gravity force is 240. N) What is the acceleration of the car if he exerts a force of 350. N?

F = ma

F/m = a

(350 N - 240 N)/980 kg = .112 m/s2

### 4. What is the acceleration of a 6.0 Kg object hanging on a string that is under a tension of 80. N? 30. N? (Make up positive)

F = ma

6 kg * 9.81 m/s = 58.9 N

A. (80 N - 58.9 N) = (6 kg)a

21.1 N = (6 kg)a

a = 3.5 m/s2

B. (30 N - 58.9 N) = (6 kg)a

(-28.9 N) = (6 kg)a

a = -4.81 m/s2
