The relationship between net force and acceleration is described by 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. Mathematically, this relationship can be expressed as F = ma, where F is the net force, m is the mass of the object, and a is the acceleration.

- A box with an initial speed of #7 m/s# is moving up a ramp. The ramp has a kinetic friction coefficient of #5/6 # and an incline of #pi /4 #. How far along the ramp will the box go?
- An object with a mass of #2 kg# is acted on by two forces. The first is #F_1= < 2 N , 5 N># and the second is #F_2 = < 1 N, -6 N>#. What is the object's rate and direction of acceleration?
- An object with a mass of #6 kg# is pushed along a linear path with a kinetic friction coefficient of #u_k(x)= 1+3cscx #. How much work would it take to move the object over #x in [(pi)/6, (pi)/4], where x is in meters?
- An object with a mass of #9 kg# is acted on by two forces. The first is #F_1= << -7 N , 1 N >># and the second is #F_2 = << 4 N, -3 N >>#. What is the objects rate and direction of acceleration?
