Find the acceleration of the object of mass 5.0 kg shown in the accompanying diagram.
An object with a mass of 5.0 kg accelerates at a rate of 2.0 m/s2 in the positive -direction when two forces are applied to it. One of the forces acts in the positive -direction with magnitude 12.0 N. Find the magnitude of the other force.
The body shown being acted on by three forces has a mass of 10.0 kg. Find the acceleration of the body.
