  A force applied to an object of mass m1 produces an acceleration of 3.50 m/s2. The same force applied to a second object of mass m2 produces an acceleration of 1.20 m/s2.If m1 and m2 are combined into one object, find its acceleration under the action of the force .

Question

A force applied to an object of mass m1 produces an acceleration of 3.50 m/s2. The same force applied to a second object of mass m2 produces an acceleration of 1.20 m/s2.

If m1 and m2 are combined into one object, find its acceleration under the action of the force .
