Mission NL8: F = m•a Calculations


Mission NL8 pertains to the use of the Newton's Second Law equation (Fnet=m•a) to perform calculations of Fnet, m, and a. The mission consists of 36 questions organized into 10 Question Groups. You must answer one question from each Question Group to complete the mission. The learning outcomes for this mission are ...
 

Learning Outcomes

  • The student should be able to utilize Newton's second law equation to algebraically solve for an unknown quantity - acceleration, net force, or mass.
  • The student should be able to analyze and interpret a free-body diagram and determine the acceleration of an object.
