Newton's second law:

$\overline{){\mathbf{\Sigma }}{\mathbf{F}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{m}}{\mathbf{a}}}$

a = ΣF/m

Acceleration is inversely proportional to mass. A small mass has greater acceleration.

###### Problem Details

Two toy cars with masses as given are ready to race. Both cars begin from rest. The same force is applied to each car for 10 s.

For each question, state whether the correct answer is car A, car B, or whether the two cars have equal values for the parameter in question.

Car A = 1.00 kg

Car B = 1.62 kg

Which car has traveled farther after 10 s? Why? Explain in detail

Car A, Car B, or Neither?
