Question

Since astronauts in orbit are apparently weightless, a clever method of measuring their masses is needed to monitor their mass gains or losses to adjust diets. One way to do this is to exert a known force on an astronaut and measure the acceleration produced. Suppose a net external force of magnitude 52.0 N is exerted and the magnitude of the astronaut’s acceleration is measured to be 0.936 m/s2. Calculate her mass.

    Answer:

    55.56kg

    Explanation:

    Given:

    F= 52N

    a=0.936m/s²

    Applyinc Newton’s second law, that states: force is equal to mass times acceleration.

    F = ma

    m=F/a =>52 / 0.936

    m=55.56kg
