what's the gravitational force acting upon the lion and hear

00:23

the potential answers All right well clowns are kind of

00:28

creepy already right But a clown on top of a

00:30

lion What a freaking nightmare Answer this question correctly It's

00:34

important that we understand exactly what it's asking Well the

00:37

question isn't asking about the total force exerted on the

00:40

lion in the clown and it's not asking about the

00:42

force exerted by the weight on the lion's back either

00:46

It's asking about the gravitational force acting upon the lion

00:50

and only the lines Two things we need to answer

00:53

this question of the line's Wait Just five hundred kilograms

00:56

and the force of gravity which is about ten meters

00:59

per second squared Now all we have to do is

01:02

multiply those two together to get the answer Which is

01:05

Yeah Five thousand newton's Right Option b is the correct

01:09

Answer This question is a little tricky because it gives

01:11

us more information than we actually need to answer it

01:14

So we need to make sure that we fully understand

01:15

What's being asked if we don't get distracted by the 00:01:18.969 --> [endTime] shine would like that
