two forces act on a moving object with a mass of 27kg.one force has a magnitude of 12N and points south, while the other has a magnitude of 17N and points due west. Whats the acceleration of the object?

  • physics - ,

    The magnitude of the net force is
    F =sqrt[(12N)^2+ (17N)^2]
    = 20.80N
    The acceleration of the object is
    a = F/m
    Here m = 27 kg

    Substitute the values for a.
