Dana and Gina are pushing on a box. Dana pushes with 250 N of force and Gina pushes with 100 N of force.
A. What is the net force if tey both push the box in the same direction.

B. what is the net force if they push in the opposite directions?

  • Physics science -

    A.)if they push in the same direction,just add the two forces
    Fnet=250N+100N

    B.)if opposite

    Fnet=250N-100N
    (the resultant force will be toward th lesser force)
