Using the consistent (fps) units of the foot-pound-second system of weights
and measures: A body's acceleration [a] is proportional to the ratio of the
net force [f] exerted on and/or by it to [divided by] its mass [m]!
Therefore [f] is not _equal_ to [ma]! A body's mass [m] is proportional to
the ratio of the (net) force [f], exerted on and/or by it to [divided] by
the acceleration [a] that
occurs; due to that force: Therefore, for one slug of mass: f/a = 1#
sec˛/foot = w/g = 5.33#
sec˛/5.33 feet =32# sec˛/32 feet....
With mass [m] being proportional to the ratios: m = f/a = w/g:
f = (w/g)a [= (f/a)a]; where by transposition f/a = (w/g) = (f/a):
w = (f/a)g [=(w/g)g]; where by transposition w/g = (f/a) = (w/g).
Any intellegent pros or cons are welcome; from anyone.
