A 5 KG box is accelerating at 2m/s. How much force is needed to cause and sustain this acceleration?

May 7th, 2015

F=ma

   =5 x 2

   =10 N

is the force required to cause and sustain the acceleration

5kg x 2 m/s = 10 Kg.m/s. 

Is 1 N = 1 Kg.m/s ?

Acceleration is m/s^2 and not m/s

N= kg. m/s^2
