A force acts for 10 secs on a stationary body of mass 100kg after which the force ceases to act. The body moves through a distance of 100m in the next 5 secs. Calculate:-

i) the velocity acquiured by the body

ii) the acceleration producced by the force

iii) the magnitude of the force

Expert Answer:

Let us assume the body moves with constant velocity after the force cease to act 
 
Velocity after the force cease to act = distance / time = 100 m / 5 s = 20 m/s
 
Velocity v after 10 second is 20 m/s and the body starts from rest , then acceleration a is determined from following equation
 
v = ( a × t )   
 
acceleration  a = v / t = 20 /10 = 2 m/s2 
 
 Force = mass × acceleration = 100 × 2 = 200 N
