two forces are applied to a 40kg object. one force is 50N and the other is 60N. if the forces are perpendicular to another, what will the resultant acceleration of the object be?

  1. What is sqrt(50^2+60^2) ?

    that force=m*a solve for a.

  2. sqrt(50^2+60^2)

    = 78.1

    F=ma

    78.1=(40)a ----> 78.1/40=a

    a= 1.95m/s^2 is this correct? :)
