Question

The earth's gravitational force causes an acceleration of 5 ms2 in a 1 kg mass somewhere in space. How much will the acceleration of a 3 kg mass be at the same place?


  1. 0

  2. 9.8 ms2

  3. 10 ms2

  4. 5 ms2


Solution

The correct option is D

5 ms2


The acceleration produced by the gravitational force of earth does not depend on the mass of the object. So, the acceleration produced in the 3 kg mass will be the same as that produced in 1 kg mass i.e.  5 ms2.
