Physics - Force

A 0.30kg lab cart is observed to accelerate twice as fast as a 0.60kg cart. Does that mean that the net force on the more massive cart is twice as large as the force on the smaller cart? Explain.

  1. net force=mass*a
    if the mass is 1/2, and a is twice, the net force must be the same.
