Question

A 1440-kg submarine rises straight up towards the surface. Seawater exerts both an upward buoyant force of 16870 N on the submarine, as well as a downward resistive force of 1010 N. What is the submarine's acceleration?

Step 1

Given:

Mass of the submarine = 1440 kg

Buoyant force in upward direction = 16870 N

Resistive force by the water = 1010 N

Step 2
