What is the objects acceleration? I know you use F=m*a

Do you add the two F vectors together & take the square root to find the sum of F?

ex: Fnet=6Ni-14Nj & then sqrt(6^2+14^2)=12.5N

**Damon**, Sunday, September 19, 2010 at 5:28pmA = F/m

A = (F1+F2)/4

F1+F2 = 6 i - 14 j as you said

so

A = (3/2) i - (7/2) j

sure if you want the magnitude go ahead and use 12.5/4 but it just said find the acceleration which is the vector A

**TutorCat**, Sunday, September 19, 2010 at 5:29pmit looks right to me. just plug in 12.5N and 4kg into the formula and solve for acceleration.
