An object with a mass of #3 kg# is acted on by two forces. The first is #F_1= < -2 N , -3 N># and the second is #F_2 = < 7 N, 1 N>#. What is the object's rate and direction of acceleration?
The resultant force acting is
First find the resultant force acting:
The magnitude of the force is:
The magnitude of the acceleration is given by Newton's Second Law:
The direction of the acceleration will be given by:
