10 Accelerometer... Let’s put in some numbers: Let’s put in some numbers: Say the car goes from 0 to 60 mph in 10 seconds: Say the car goes from 0 to 60 mph in 10 seconds: 60 mph = 60 x 0.45 m/s = 27 m/s. 60 mph = 60 x 0.45 m/s = 27 m/s. Acceleration a = Δv/Δt = 2.7 m/s 2. Acceleration a = Δv/Δt = 2.7 m/s 2. So a/g = 2.7 / 9.8 = 0.28. So a/g = 2.7 / 9.8 = 0.28.  = arctan (a/g) = 15.6 deg  = arctan (a/g) = 15.6 deg a 

11 Understanding A person standing on a horizontal floor feels two forces: the downward pull of gravity and the upward supporting force from the floor. These two forces (A)Have equal magnitudes and form an action/reaction pair (B)Have equal magnitudes but do not form an action/reaction pair (C)Have unequal magnitudes and form an action/reaction pair (D)Have unequal magnitudes and do not form an action/reaction pair (E)None of the above Because the person is not accelerating, the net force they feel is zero. Therefore the magnitudes must be the same (opposite directions. These are not action/reaction forces because they act of the same object (the person). Action/Reaction pairs always act on different objects.
