Figure shows the velocity-time graph of a particle of mass 100 g moving in a straight line. Calculate the force acting on the particle.
(Hint : Acceleration = Slope of the v-t graph)

Solution

Given mass, m = 100 g = 0.1 kg.

Slope of a velocity-time graph gives the value of acceleration.

Acceleration = Slope = 20/5 = 4 m/s2.

Force = Mass × Acceleration.

Force = 0.1 × 4 = 0.4 N.
