1 | [katex] F = ma [/katex] | The equation relates force, mass, and the acceleration of the object, where [katex] F [/katex] is the force, [katex] m [/katex] is the mass, and [katex] a [/katex] is the acceleration. |

2 | [katex] a = \frac{F}{m} [/katex] | Rearrange the formula to solve for acceleration [katex] a [/katex]. |

3 | [katex] a = \frac{8.0 \, \text{N}}{16 \, \text{kg}} [/katex] | Substitute the values [katex] F = 8.0 \, \text{N} [/katex] and [katex] m = 16 \, \text{kg} [/katex]. |

4 | [katex] a = 0.5 \, \text{m/s}^2 [/katex] | Calculate the acceleration. |

5 | [katex] v = u + at [/katex] | Use the equation of motion where [katex] v [/katex] is the final velocity, [katex] u [/katex] is the initial velocity (0 m/s since the object is initially at rest), [katex] a [/katex] is the acceleration, and [katex] t [/katex] is the time. |

6 | [katex] v = 0 \, \text{m/s} + (0.5 \, \text{m/s}^2)(4 \, \text{s}) [/katex] | Substitute [katex] a = 0.5 \, \text{m/s}^2 [/katex] and [katex] t = 4 \, \text{s} [/katex] into the equation of motion. |

7 | [katex] v = 2 \, \text{m/s} [/katex] | Calculate the final velocity after 4 seconds. |

8 | [katex]\textbf{2 m/s}[/katex] |
The change in speed of the object after 4 seconds is 2 m/s, hence the correct answer is (b) 2 m/s. |

The steepest street in the world is Baldwin Street in Dunedin, New Zealand. It has an inclination angle of 38.0° with respect to the horizontal. Suppose a wooden crate with a mass of 25.0 kg is placed on Baldwin Street. An additional force of 59 N must be applied to the crate perpendicular to the pavement in order to hold the crate in place. If the coefficient of static friction between the crate and the pavement is 0.599, what is the magnitude of the frictional force?

A horizontal uniform meter stick of mass 0.2 kg is supported at its midpoint by a pivot point. A mass of 0.1 kg is attached to the left end of the meter stick, and another mass of 0.15 kg is attached to the right end of the meter stick. The meter stick is free to rotate in the horizontal plane around the pivot point. What is the tension in the string supporting the left end of the meter stick?

MCQ

Block m_{1} is stacked on top of block m2. Block m_{2} is connected by a light cord to block m_{3}, which is pulled along a frictionless surface with a force F as shown in the diagram above. Block m_{1} is accelerated at the same rate as block m_{2} because of the frictional forces between the two blocks. If all three blocks have the same mass m, what is the minimum coefficient of static friction between block m_{1} and block m_{2}?

A horizontal 300 N force pushes a 40 kg object across a horizontal 10 meter frictionless surface. After this, the block slides up a 20° incline. Assuming the incline has a coefficient of kinetic friction of 0.4, how far along the incline with the object slide?

General Metric Conversion Chart

Conversion Example

Example of using unit analysis: Convert 5 kilometers to millimeters.

Start with the given measurement:

`[katex]\text{5 km}[/katex]`

Use the conversion factors for kilometers to meters and meters to millimeters:

`[katex]\text{5 km} \times \frac{10^3 \, \text{m}}{1 \, \text{km}} \times \frac{10^3 \, \text{mm}}{1 \, \text{m}}[/katex]`

Perform the multiplication:

`[katex]\text{5 km} \times \frac{10^3 \, \text{m}}{1 \, \text{km}} \times \frac{10^3 \, \text{mm}}{1 \, \text{m}} = 5 \times 10^3 \times 10^3 \, \text{mm}[/katex]`

Simplify to get the final answer:

`[katex]\boxed{5 \times 10^6 \, \text{mm}}[/katex]`
