An object with a mass of #2 kg# is acted on by two forces. The first is #F_1= <5 N , 7 N># and the second is #F_2 = < 2 N, -4 N>#. What is the object's rate and direction of acceleration?
The resultant force is
The mass is
According to Newton's Second Law of motion
The acceleration is
The rate of acceleration is
The direction of acceleration is
