 Practice Problems Net F = ma

Directions: On this worksheet, positive horizontal directions are towards the right and positive vertical directions are upwards. omit
Question 1  What is the net force acting on a 6-kg mass if it is accelerating at a rate of 5 m/sec2?  omit
Question 2  What is the magnitude of the frictional force present if a 6-kg mass being pulled by a horizontal force of 8 newtons towards the right experiences an acceleration of -1.67 m/sec2?  omit
Question 3  A 6-kg mass experiences two vertical forces: 15.3 newtons pulling upward and 58.8 newtons pulling downward. What acceleration does the 6-kg mass undergo?  omit
Question 4  A 6-kg mass is being pulled towards the right with a rope that has a tension of 56 newtons at an angle of 42 degrees to the x-axis. If the surface is frictionless, what acceleration will the mass develop?  omit
Question 5  A 16-gram bullet travelling at 80 m/sec is fired into a tree. If the bullet is brought to a stop in a distance of 42 centimeters, what average resistive force did the tree exert upon it?
