What is the weight in newtons of a 250 g package of cereal?
need answer and work shown asap! plz and thank u!
Although physics is definitely not my area, you might find something here to help you:
"The newton is the unit of force derived in the SI system; it is equal to the amount of force required to accelerate a mass of one kilogram at a rate of one metre per second per second."
So a mass of 1 kilogram has a weight of 1*g=9.81 newtons, where g is the acceleration due to gravity in m/s²
How much is the weight exerted by a mass of 250 g?
