A car has a mass of 1.56 × 103 kg.
If the force acting on the car is 6.63 × 103
N to the east, what is the car’s acceleration?
Answer in units of m/s2.

  • physics -

    Since F = m a,

    a = F/m

    The acceleration is in the same direction as the force, to the east. The units will be m/s^2 since the force is in Newtons.

    a = (6.63*10^3 N)/(1.56*10^3 kg)

    Do the division.
