# Long Jumper's Force Calculation

## What is the force of an 80 kg long jumper in flight accelerating at a rate of 10 m/s^2?

## Answer:

The force of the long jumper is 800 N.

When an 80 kg long jumper is in flight and accelerates at a rate of 10 m/s^2, we can calculate the force exerted by using Newton's second law of motion, which is Force (F) equals mass (m) multiplied by acceleration (a).

Given data:

- Mass (m) = 80 kg
- Acceleration (a) = 10 m/s^2

Using the formula:

**F = m × a**

Substitute the values into the formula:

**F = 80 kg × 10 m/s^2**

Calculating the value:

**F = 800 kg.m/s²**

Therefore, the force of the 80 kg long jumper in flight accelerating at 10 m/s^2 is calculated to be 800 N.
