## Question

two bodies have a mass ratio of 3:4.the force applied on the bigger mass produces an acceleration of 12 ms-2.what could be the acceleration of the other body,if the same forces acts on it​

9 ms-2

because -

F1=F2

THEN

ma=Ma

3*12=4*a

so

acceleration =9ms-2

• Acceleration of the other body = 16 m/s²

Explanation:

Given :

• Mass of the first body = 3
• Mass of the second body = 4
• Force applied on the bigger mass produces an acceleration = 12 m/s²

We know that,

Force = Mass × Acceleration

• F = m × a

To find the Force, We have to take bigger mass,

⟹ F = 4 × 12

⟹ F = 48 N

To find the acceleration of the other body,

⟹ F = m × a

⟹ a = F / m ( And smaller mass = 3 )

⟹ a = 48 / 3

⟹ a = 16 m/s²

• Hence, Acceleration of the other body = 16 m/s²
