During an episode of turbulence in an airplane you feel 190 N heavier than usual. If your mass is 78 kg, what are the magnitude and direction of the airplane's acceleration?

For the F=ma, I manipulated the equation and have gotten, a=190N/78kg=2.4 is this correct? And how do I solve the other portion of the problem?

  1. you feel heavier, so the acceleration is opposite gravity

  2. oh so the formula would be W=ma, hence, 78kg/190N=W?

  3. 190 N/78 kg ----->the 2.4 m/s^2 is correct. It is up if you feel heavier.
