15.A certain force exerted for 1.2 seconds raises the speed of an object from 1.8 m/s to
4.2 m/s. Later the same force is applied for 2 seconds. How much does the velocity
change in 2 seconds?
16.A force of 5N produces an acceleration of 8m/s2 on a mass m1 and acceleration of
24m/s2 on m2.What acceleration would the same force provide if both the masses are tied
17.When force applied by a moving vehicle is calculated, the actual force applied by the

brakes may be slightly less than the one calculated theoretically.Why?
