A force of 5N gives a mass m1 an acceleration of 8m/s2 a mass m2 an acceleration of 24m/s2 the acceleration if both the masses are tied together is



For the first body,

Now, F=ma
     So, 5=m₁ * 8
    So,  m¹=5/8 kg

For second body,
mass= m₂
a=24 m/s²

Now, F=ma
So,   5=m₂ * 24
So,   m₂=5/24 kg

Combined mass of both bodies, m₁+m₂= 5/8 + 5/24
                                                               = (15+5)/24 
                                                               = 20/24 kg

Now, m= 20/24 kg
         F= 5N
         a= ?

So, 5= 20/24 * a
So, a=5*24/20
So, a= 6m/s²

Thus the acceleration produced will be 6 m/s²
