newtons is a measurement of force

just substitute that for the sign "N"

so you say that there is 895N per 655kg, so 895kg*m/s*s/655kg

then you cross out the "kg" and do the math, not too bad

Is a rowboat faster than a sailboat?

In general, a rowboat is not faster than a sailboat. Sailboats utilize the power of the wind to propel them forward, which can be more efficient than rowing. However, the speed of a boat can also depend on various factors such as design, size, and conditions.

What is the purpose of a keel in a sailboat?

The purpose of a keel in a sailboat are to generate lift to counteract the force of the wind. The keel converts the motion of the wind into a forward motion for the sailboat.

What are exmaples of acceleration?

When you are stopped at a light, and it turns green, you start to drive forward. That is acceleration.

True or false Negative acceleration always means that a system is slowing down?

false A car can have a negative acceleration and be speeding up. A negative acceleration determines the direction of the acceleration A car with forward acceleration will speed up in the forward direction A car moving forward with a negative acceleration will slow down A car not moving with a negative acceleration will speed up in the backward direction A car moving backward with a negative acceleration will speed up in the backward direction

Why do the sterns of some sailboats angle forward and others backward?

There seems to be a rather wide difference of opinion regarding these aerodynamic/hydrodynamic effects.

What prefix combined with flexion means forward curvature of a part or organ?

The prefix "ante-" combined with "flexion" means forward curvature of a part or organ.

What is an example of acceleration in direction of motion?

An example of acceleration in the direction of motion is when a car speeds up while driving on a highway. As the driver presses on the accelerator pedal, the car's velocity increases in the same direction as its motion, resulting in acceleration in the direction of travel.

When a car is moving in reverse backing from a driveway the driver applies the brake in what direction is the car's acceleration?

The car's acceleration is in forward direction.

Why is Acceleration vector quantity?

That simply means that the direction of the acceleration is relevant. For example, if something is moving in the "forward" direction, it isn't the same if we accelerate it forward, backward, or sideways. The results are different.Also, acceleration is calculated as dv/dt, meaning you divide a velocity difference by a time. Since velocity is itself a vector, acceleration is also a vector.

Combined Vectors that go only forward or backward are one demensional?
