On my physics home work i have a question that puts the weight in grams, and i need to find the acceleration. I know that the formula is F=ma, and Force is in newtons, mass is in kg and acceleration is in m/s^2. but can you still find the acceleration by using grams with out c...
I have NO idea how to do this! any help is great! A car of maass 1330kg is traveling at 28m/s. The driverapplies the brakes to bring the car to a rest over a distance of 79m. Calculate the retarding force acting on the car. From this i can see that it gives me the Mass:1330kg ...
Thank you again for your time

A person is riding a bicycle, and its wheels have an angular velocity of 17.7 rad/s. Then, the brakes are applied and the bike is brought to a uniform stop. During braking, the angular displacement of each wheel is 12.4 revolutions. (a) How much time does it take for the bike ...
A star rotates in a circular orbit about the center of its galaxy. The radius of the orbit is 6.2 x 1020 m, and the angular speed of the star is 4.3 x 10-15 rad/s. How long (in years) does it take for the star to make one revolution around the center?
