A certain force gives an object of mass m1 an acceleration of 13.0 m/s2 and an object of mass m2 an acceleration of 2.10 m/s2. What acceleration would the force give to an object of mass (a)m2 – m1 and (b)m2 + m1?

  • physics -

    (a) 13 = F/m1
    2.1 = F/m2
    m2/m1 = 13/2.1 = 6.19

    F/(m2 - m1) = F/[m2(1 -(m1/m2)]
    = (F/m2)/(1 -0.1615) = 2.1/(0.8385)
    = 2.5 m/s

    (b) F/(m1 + m2) = F/[m2(1 +(m1/m2)]
    You finish it.

    i keep on having b) wrong even when replacing

  • physics -

    (b) F/(m1 + m2) = F/[m2(1 +(m1/m2)]
    = F/m2*[1/(1 + 0.1615)]
    = 2.1*/1.1615 = 1.81 m/s^2
