Find the acceleration of the object of mass 5.0 kg shown in the accompanying diagram.
The body shown being acted on by three forces has a mass of 10.0 kg. Find the acceleration of the body.
Two children push horizontally and in opposite directions on a wagon. The first child pushes the wagon forward with a force of 56.2 N, while the second child pushes with a force of 82.6 N. The motion of the wagon on the ground produces a 10.3 N friction force. The mass of the wagon is 38.5 kg. Assume that forward displacement of the wagon corresponds to positive values.
What is the resultant acceleration of the wagon?
What is the resultant acceleration of the wagon if the friction force is 18.6 N?
