Physics

You are pulling a crate across the floor. The crate has a mass of 75.0 kg. You exert a horizontal force of 120. N to the left. Friction exerts a force of 82.0 N to the right. What is the magnitude (fill in box) and direction of the acceleration of the crate?

asked by Josie
  1. 120 - 82 = 38 newtons to LEFT

    F = m a

    38 = 75 a

    a = 0.507 m/s^2 to the left
