A car has a mass of 2000 kg and accelerates at 3.0 meters per second squared. What is the magnitude of the force acting on the car?
Force = (mass) x (acceleration) F = (2,000) x (3) = 6,000 There are several forces acting on the car. When all of their magnitudes and directions are added up, they all add up to a single 6,000 Newtons pointing in the direction in which the car is speeding up.
Force = (mass) x (acceleration) F = (2,000) x (3) = 6,000 Use this formula to get the answer
