A bowling ball weighs 71.2N. The bowler applies horizontal force of 160N to the ball. What is the magnitude of the horizontal acceleration of the ball?
The bowling ball weighs 71.2N.
Horizontal force is 160N.
The weight of the ball = Force of ball due to gravitation/Gravitational acceleration
= 61.2/g (where g=9.8m/s^2)
Force = ma (where m=mass and a=acceleration)
