## Question:

Two forces act on a 6.00-kg object. One of the forces is 10.0 N. If the object accelerates at 2.00 m/{eq}s^2 {/eq}, what is the greatest possible magnitude of the other force?

a. 1.0N

b. 2.0N

c. 22.0 N

d. 34.0 N

## Net Force:

The net force is the total amount of force acting on a body in all directions, the directions are considered due to the vector property of force. We can express the net force ({eq}F_{net} {/eq}) in equation form as;

{eq}\begin{align} F_{net} &= ma\\ \sum F &= ma \end{align} {/eq}

where {eq}m {/eq} is the mass of the object and {eq}a {/eq} is the acceleration of the body.

Given:

• Mass of the object ({eq}m {/eq}) = 6.00 kg
• First force ({eq}F_1 {/eq}) = 10.0 N
• Acceleration of the object ({eq}a {/eq}) = 2.00...
