What is the net force necessary for a 1.6 x 103 kg automobile to accelerate forward at 2.0 m/s2? (Show your work!)
 
 
 

Rearrange F = m a to solve for mass.
 
 

A baseball is dropped and accelerates downward at 9.8 m/s2.  If the gravitational force of the baseball is 1.4 N, what is the baseball’s mass? (Show your work!)
 
 
 

Rearrange F = m a to solve for acceleration.
 
 

A sailboat has a mass of 655 kg.  If there is a force of 895 Newtons pushing it forward, what is the acceleration of the sailboat?
