# A body of mass 5 kg is acted upon by two perpendicular forces of magnitude 8 N and 6N. Find the magnitude and direction of the acceleration.

R= √ sqr8 + sqr (-6) =√ 64+36 = 10N

Teacher!

The resultant force can be calculated by Parallelogram law of vectors. F = root of(8square+ 6square) = 10N From Newton's second law F = ma So acceleration a = F/m = 10/5 = 2 m/s2

Physics is fun. Love for physics. Physician in South delhi

Resultant acceleration will be.2 m/square.

Since two forces are acting in the direction perpendicular then resultant force=(8²+6²)½ F=10N F=m a 10=5 a a=2 m/s²

Since two forces are acting in the direction perpendicular then resultant force=(8²+6²)½

F=10N

F=m a

10=5 a

a=2 m/s²

Since two forces are acting in the direction perpendicular then resultant force=(8²+6²)½ F=10N F=m a 10=5 a a=2 m/s²

Since two forces are acting in the direction perpendicular then resultant force=(8²+6²)½

F=10N

F=m a

10=5 a

a=2 m/s²

Resultant force is 10N due to which acceleration get 2m/sq

Net force Fsq=8sq+6sqB FSQ=100Nand henceF=10Na Accleration a=F/m=10/5=2meter/sec sq

Resultant force by pythogoras theoram => √(8²+6²) =√(64+36) = √100 =10 N Magnitude of acceleration = F/m = 10 N / 5 Kg = 2 m/s² Direction of acceleration = tan inverse(6/8) = 36.9º inclined with the direction of the force of 8N

Why does a swimmer push the water backwards?
According to newton's 3rd law of motion in each and every action there is an equal and opposite force. So if he push the water backwards then according to the above principle or law he will be able to move forward.
