You pull upward on a stuffed suitcase with a force of 116 N, and it accelerates upward at 0.778 m/s2.

(a) What is the mass of the suitcase?
(b) What is the weight of the suitcase?

  • physics -

    Assuming this is on earth where g = 9.8 m/s^2
    Net Force = mass * acceleration
    Net force = 116 - 9.8 m
    so
    116 - 9.8 m = m (.778)
    solve for m
    then weight = m g = 9.8 m
