Four forces act on a mass, $m$ as indicated in the free body diagram below.

Created for Albert.io. Copyright 2017. All rights reserved.

Looking at the magnitudes:

$${ F }_{ 1 }={ F }_{ 3 }>{ F }_{ 2 }={ F }_{ 4 }$$

When ${ F }_{ 3 }$ is doubled, the acceleration of the mass is $a$.

Which of the following changes to the original system would also result in an acceleration equal in magnitude to $a$?

A

Double ${ F }_{ 1 }$.

B

Double ${ F }_{ 2 }$.

C

Double ${ F }_{ 4 }$.

D

Double any of the forces.
