A fisherman yanks a fish out of the water with an acceleration of 2.4 m/s2 using very light fishing line that has a ''test'' value of 100N. The fisherman unfortunately loses the fish as the line snaps.
A. find the mass thst the fishing line of 100N can support.

• physics -

ma= - mg+T
m(a+g)=T
m=T/(a+g)=
=100/(2.4+9.8) =8.2 kg
