please help! physics doesn't click with me. thank you for your help! A 23 kg suitcase is being pulled with a constant speed by a handle that is at an angle of 25 above the horizontal. If the normal force exerted on the suitcase is 155 N, what is the force F applied to the ...

(a) The weight Mg acts centripetally at the top of the hill. A smaller "normal" force is applied by the tires in the opposite direction. The net of the two forces is M V^2/R. That is probably what they are looking for (b) M g - M V^2/R is the "normal" force applied to the ...

Two charged particles exert an electrostatic force of 8 N on each other. What will the magnitude of the electrostatic force be if the distance between the two charges is REDUCED to one-third of the original distance? Would you just have to multiply 8 by 9?
