 Question 609888: The acceleration of an object varies directly as the force acting on it. If a force of 240 newtons causes an acceleration of 150 m/sē, what force will cause an acceleration of 100 m/s2?Answer by stanbon(57337)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The acceleration of an object varies directly as the force acting on it. If a force of 240 newtons causes an acceleration of 150 m/sē, what force will cause an acceleration of 100 m/s2? --- a = kf Solve for "k" using "a force of 240 newtons causes an acceleration of 150 m/sē" --- 150 = k*240 k = 0.625 ---- What force will cause an acceleration of 100 m/s2? Equation: a = 0.625f 100 = 0.625*f f = 100/0.625 f = 160 newtons ====================== cheers, Stan H.
