Physics Review Question
Answer 3 momentum INCORRECT Momentum is the product of mass and velocity, and it doesn't really deal with weight. return to top Answer 4 acceleration due to gravity CORRECT With acceleration due to gravity, as the mass increases so does the weight, and this is what the graph is showing. You can also use the formula dealing with weight, mass, and acceleration to see that the graph is showing acceleration due to gravity. Formula: w = mg (where m is mass, w is weight, and g is the acceleration due to gravity (9.8 m/s). Think of slope being rise divided by run. On this graph, weight is the rise and mass is the run. g=w/m return to top What's this question really asking? How is the relationship of weight and mass important in relation to acceleration due to gravity? return to top |
