A body of mass 5 kg is acted upon by two perpendicular forces 8 N and 6 N. Give the magnitude and direction of the acceleration of the body.

Mass of the body, m = 5 kg

The given situation can be represented as follows:

The resultant of two forces is given by,Â

R =Â
Â is theÂ angle made byÂ RÂ with the force of 8 N.

Therefore,Â

The negative sign indicates thatÂ Î¸Â is in the clockwise direction with respect to the force of magnitude 8 N.

According to Newtonâ€™s second law of motion

Acceleration (
a) of the body is given as,Â

F = maÂ

Therefore,Â

a =

When the branches of an apple tree are shaken, the apples fall down. Why?

The apple fall from an apple tree when it shaken because of inertia of rest. Apple is in a state of rest and when the tree is suddenly shaken, apples still tends to remain in it's same state of rest whereas branches move.Â

So, the apples fall down.Â
