Force=Massxacceleration Mass= force/ acceleration
Force measured in newtons (N) Mass measured in kilo grams (kg)
Acceleration measured in metres per second squared (m/s squared)
A car has a mass of 1750 kg and an engine that provides a driving force of 5200N. find the acceleration of the car from rest.
Force= 5200N a=f/m a=5200/1750 5200/1750= 3.0m/s squared
