a force is applied to a 1.9 kg mass and produces a 3.1 m/s^2 acceleration. what acceleration would be produced by the same force applied to a 14.3 kg mass? answer in m/s^2
F = m a , so
a = F/m
Acceleration is inversely proportional to mass. The larger mass will accelerate 1.9/14.3 = 13.29% as fast.
