Force Simulation MakeUp Assignment
Directions: On a piece of paper, please answer the following questions using the equation: FORCE = MASS x ACCELERATION
Plug in the given values for Force/Mass/Acceleration to solve.
Remember, mass is in kg   force in in N (newtons)   acceleration is in m/s2

How much force is needed to accelerate a 66 kg skier at 2 m/sec2?

What is the force on a 1000 kg elevator that is falling freely at 9.8 m/sec2?

What is the acceleration of a 50 kg object pushed with a force of 500 newtons?

The mass of a large car is 1000 kg. How much force would be required to accelerate the car at a rate of 3 m/sec2?

A 50 kg skater pushed by a friend accelerates 5 m/sec2. How much force did the friend apply?

A force of 250 N is applied to an object that accelerates at a rate of 5 m/sec2. What is the mass of the object?

A bowling ball rolled with a force of 15 N accelerates at a rate of 3 m/sec2; a second ball rolled with the same force accelerates 4 m/sec2. What are the masses of the two balls?

If a 60 kg person on a 15 kg sled is pushed with a force of 300 N, what will be person’s acceleration?
