# What is the net force that acts on a10 N falling object when it encounters 4 N of air resistance?...

## Question:

What is the net force that acts on a{eq}10 \ N {/eq} falling object when it encounters {eq}4 \ N {/eq} of air resistance? {eq}10 \ N {/eq} of air resistance?

## Newton's Law:

Newton's law relates that the sum of forces acting on an object is proportional to its acceleration, *a*, {eq}\displaystyle \Sigma F = ma
{/eq}, wherein, *m* is the object's mass. We can add up {eq}\displaystyle F
{/eq} as long as it is along the same axis of movement.
