To find the acceleration of the object, you can use Newton's second law of motion, which states that the acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the net force acting on it and inversely proportional to its mass. The formula to calculate acceleration (a) is:

a = F / m

Where:

- a is the acceleration,
- F is the force applied,
- m is the mass of the object.

Given that the force (F) is 42 N and the mass (m) is 15 kg:

a = 42 N / 15 kg a ≈ 2.8 m/s²

Therefore, the object will accelerate at approximately 2.8 meters per second squared.

- An object with a mass of #7 kg# is pushed along a linear path with a kinetic friction coefficient of #mu_k(x)= 4+secx#. How much work would it take to move the object over #x in [(-5pi)/12, (pi)/4]#, where x is in meters?
- An object with a mass of #2 kg# is acted on by two forces. The first is #F_1= <5 N , 7 N># and the second is #F_2 = < 2 N, -4 N>#. What is the object's rate and direction of acceleration?
- An object, previously at rest, slides #4 m# down a ramp, with an incline of #pi/4 #, and then slides horizontally on the floor for another #5 m#. If the ramp and floor are made of the same material, what is the material's kinetic friction coefficient?
- The same force acts on two objects with different masses. Why does the object with less mass have a larger acceleration?
- If a #13 kg# object moving at #4 m/s# slows down to a halt after moving #80 m#, what is the friction coefficient of the surface that the object was moving over?
