a = 16 m/s²

General Formulas and Concepts:

Dynamics

Newton’s Law of Motions

• Newton’s 1st Law of Motion: An object at rest remains at rest and an object in motion stays in motion
• Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion: F = ma (Force is equal to [constant] mass times acceleration)
• Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction

Explanation:

Step 1: Define

Identify variables

[Given] F = 22000 N

[Given] m = 1375 kg

[Solve] a

Step 2: Find Acceleration

1. Substitute in variables [Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion]:                                 22000 N = (1375 kg)a
2. Isolate a:                                                                                                            16 m/s² = a
3. Rewrite:                                                                                                             a = 16 m/s²
