# Question #eb5af

##### 1 Answer

The acceleration of the object is

#### Explanation:

So the formula we are going to use is

=> Where

=> Where

=> Where

Before we start calculating, there are some restrictions we have to consider.

- The force of friction,
#F_"F"# , will be ignored. - No direction is specified, however, a force is applied to the object. The movement produced will be referred to as motion in a positive direction.

No direction is specified, however, a force is applied to the object. The movement produced will be referred to as motion in a positive direction.

Because we are looking for acceleration, we can rearrange the equation to give us acceleration.

#F_"NET" = ma#

#F_"NET"/m = a#

First off, we can plug in the variables respectively...

#F_"NET"/m = a#

#5/10 = a#

... and solve.

#5/10 = a#

#0.5 = a#

The acceleration of the object is

Hope this helps :)
