Question

a bowling ball rolled with a force of 15N accelerates at a rate of 5 m/sec^2 a second ball rolled with the same force accelerates 4 m/sec^2 . what are the mass of the two balls.

1 Answer

  • Answer:

    3

    3.75

    Explanation:

    First ball

    Givens

    a = 5m/s^2

    m = ??

    F = 15N

    Formula

    F = m*a

    Solution

    15 = m * 5

    15/5 = m

    m = 3 kg

    Second ball

    Givens

    a = 4m/s^2

    m = ??

    F = 15N

    Formula

    F = m*a

    Solution

    15 = m * 4

    15/4 = m

    m = 3.75 kg
