A 2.7 kg bucket of water is raised upwards by a rope. If the bucket has an acceleration of 3.4 m/s/s, find the force exerted by the rope on the bucket.

  • Taking a test?? -

    Wow! Four test (homework?) questions in under a minute. I hope you're not expecting answers anytime soon!

  • Physics -

    Try using the famous Newton's-second-law equation

    F = M a

    where M is the mass and a is the acceleration.

    The product (F) will be in Newtons.
