# How to Calculate Force on Bike and Rider

## What is the force on the bike and rider if they have a mass of 60 kg and an acceleration of 2.0 m/s^2?

The net force on the bike and the rider is 120 N

To calculate the force on the bike and rider, we can use Newton's second law of motion, which states:

F = ma

where:

F is the net force exerted on the object,

m is the mass of the object, and

a is its acceleration.

In this problem, the bike and rider together have a mass of 60 kg and an acceleration of 2.0 m/s^2. By plugging in these values into the formula, we get:

F = 60 kg * 2.0 m/s^2 = 120 N

Therefore, the force on the bike and rider is 120 Newtons.
