# In the Tough Man Competition, very strong men are challenged to push or pull extremely large and heavy objects to test their strength. Inone such challenge, they were asked to push one of two rail cars, an engine car and a box car. The data tables show one man's results.Look over the data table and answer the questions below.Force Applied by theTough ManDid it move theengine car?NoDid it move theboxcar?No1000 Newtons2000 NewtonsNoNo3000 NewtonsYesNoA Why couldn't the strong man move the box car with a force of 3000 Newtons?Make sure to include Newton's 2nd Law in your explanation.B.

The time for answering the question is over

The strong man couldn't move the box car with a force of 3000 Newtons because this force is lesser than that the force (weight) acting on the car.

### What is a force?

A force can be defined as a push or pull of an object, which typically causes a change of motion (acceleration), especially due to the interaction of the object with another.

### What is Newton's Second Law of Motion?

Newton's Second Law of Motion states that the acceleration of an object or physical body is inversely proportional to its mass and directly proportional to the net force acting on it.

Thus, we can infer that the strong man couldn't move the box car with a force of 3000 Newtons because this force is lesser than that the force (weight) acting on the box car due to accleration of gravity.

In order to move this box car, the strong man must exert a force that is greater than the force (weight) acting on it.

The evidence that was used by the other student to make this claim is that for every action (force) there is an equal but opposite reaction (force) in accordance with Newton's Third Law of Motion. Thus, the sum of the forces (net force) that are acting on the box car woud be equal to zero (0) Newton.
