Problem: The forces in (Figure 1) are acting on a 3.0-kg object.What is ax, the x-component of the object's acceleration?Express your answer to two significant figures and include the appropriate units

FREE Expert Solution

Newton's second law,

ΣF=ma

The forces acting on the object are,

F1 = - 2.0 N i

F2 = - 3.0 N j

F3 = 4.0 N i + 3.0 N j

m = 3.0 kg
