A boat moves through the water with two forces acting on it. One is a 2304N forward push by the motor on the propeller, and the other is a 2154N resistive force due to the water around the bow.
What is the acceleration of the 1293kg boat?
Answer in units of m/s^2.

  • Physics -

    sum of forces forward = 2304 - 2145

    F = m a

    a = (2304 - 2145) / 1293

    a = .123 m/s^2
