Three horizontal forces act on a box (mass = 8 kg) sitting on a smooth surface. F1 is 30 N acting at 53° counterclockwise from the +x axis, F2 is 13 N acting at 67.4° clockwise from the +x axis, and F3 is 20 N directly along the -x axis. What are the magnitude and direction of the box's acceleration?
You push a 5.1kg cart along the floor with an unknown force F at 30° below the horizontal. Using a scale, you know the Normal force is 70N. What is the horizontal acceleration of the cart?
