You are required to give the graph of acceleration against time .... Since F=ma the shape of the graph will be the same ... All you have to do is get the right units on the acceleration axis .... I'm sure you can do this , since we are told m=0.5Kg ... What is the acceleration when the force is 1N..?
 Oct 9th 2017, 10:22 PM #3 Junior Member   Join Date: Oct 2017 Posts: 5 Thank you for responding, would my acceleration be 1/0.5=2 (F/m=a) and by doing so would I do the same with the following numbers, for example, 2/0.5=4, 3/0.5=6, also on and so forth...?
