A nail is hit with a hammer with a force of 10 Newtons. The nail moves into the wood with a force _____.

greater than 10 N
less than 10N
equal to 10 N

2 Answer

  • Hey there! I'm not very good with physics but I believe it is less than 10N because the wood would slow down the force. I'm not very sure though but I hope that helps! :)
  • Less than 10N, because the wood is exerting a reaction force towards the nail.
