Problem 6E

In each of the two free-body diagrams in FIGURE, the forces are acting on a 2.0 kg object. For each diagram, find the values of ax and aY,the x- and y-components of the acceleration.

Solution 6E

Step 1 of 3

Here we have to determine the components of net acceleration acting on object of mass along x and y-axis.

Using the given force diagram, we need to calculate the net force along the x and y-axis. Then by using Newton’s second law of motion, we can determine the acceleration.
