In this lesson, we will learn how to identify Newton's second law of motion as the relationship between an object's mass and its resultant acceleration when a force is applied to it.
A sports car of mass
accelerates from 0 m/s to
30 m/s in a time of
What average force is exerted on the car during this acceleration?
A car with a mass of
applies brakes when it is moving at 90.0 km/h, and the car comes to rest after travelling
40.0 m. What is the net
force on the car during its deceleration?
Find the magnitude of the net force required to bring a car to rest if the mass of the car is
kg, its initial speed is 40.0 km/h, and its stopping distance is 25.0 m.
A cart with a mass of 18 kg is at rest on a level floor. A constant 15-N force is applied to the cart at an angle
below the horizontal. If friction is negligible, what is the speed of the cart when the force is applied over a distance 6.7 m?
A baseball catcher is performing a stunt for a television commercial.
He will catch a baseball (mass 145 g)
dropped from a height of 60.0 m
above his glove. His glove stops the ball in 0.0100 s.
What is the force exerted by his glove on the ball?
A baby dolphin of mass 35.0 kg decelerates from a horizontal speed of
12.0 m/s to a horizontal speed of
taking 2.30 s.
What average force is exerted to slow the dolphin?
The rocket sled shown in the accompanying diagram has a mass of
The sled decelerates at a rate of 196 m/s2.
What force is necessary to produce this deceleration?
Assume that the rockets have finished firing when the deceleration begins.
A particle that is initially at
rest is acted upon by a single force
for a time interval of 5.0 s.
What is the particle’s acceleration?
What is the magnitude of the displacement of the particle at the end
of the interval during which it is accelerated?
A cleaner pushes a laundry cart of mass 6.30 kg. The cleaner pushes with a net external force of 53.4 N. Calculate the magnitude of the cart’s acceleration.
What force does a trampoline have to apply to a 48.6-kg gymnast,
to accelerate her vertically upward at
A sprinter with a mass of 57.0 kg
accelerates at 3.922 m/s2.
What is the magnitude of the net external force on her?
What is Newton’s second law of motion also known as?
A model helicopter of mass
has a velocity

The helicopter is uniformly accelerated for
At the end of that interval,
it has a velocity of
What magnitude average force acted on the helicopter between
At what counterclockwise angle from the positive
-direction was the force on
the helicopter applied?
A farmer is lifting some moderately heavy rocks from a field to plant crops.
He lifts a stone that weighs
180 N. What magnitude
force does the farmer apply if the stone accelerates at a rate of

What is the particle’s acceleration vector?
What is the magnitude of the particle’s acceleration?
At what angle below the positive
is the particle’s acceleration directed?
A soccer ball of mass
is kicked across a field by a player and is given the acceleration
State the force vector for the applied force on the ball.
What magnitude force was applied to the ball?
At what angle above the horizontal was the force applied?
