A fisherman yanks a fish out of the water with an acceleration of 4.5m/s2 using very light fishing line that has a ''test'' value of 100N. The fisherman unfortunately loses the fish as the line snaps. What can you say about the mass of the fish? (please help)

  • science/physics -

    the line that has a test value of 100 newton can't take the mass of the fish that causes line snaps

  • science/physics -

    the acceleration causes the apparent weight of the fish to be greater than the line can handle.
