## a) be at rest b) be in motion with a constant velocity c) have zero acceleration

4) An object weights 300 N on Earth and 50 N on the Moon. Does the object also have

## less inertia on the Moon? Explain.

9) Three block are pulled along a frictionless surface by a horizontal force as shown

below. a

T1 T1 T2 T2 F = 18.0 N

m1 m2 m3

## a) What is the acceleration of the system?

b) What are the tension forces in the light stringes (T1 & T2)? [Hint: Can T1 = T2?

## Investigate by drawing free-body diagrams of each block separately.]
