# A net force of 10 N gives an object an acceleration of 5 m/s2. What net force would give the same object an acceleration of 8 m/s2?

$16 N$

#### Explanation:

You know that force and acceleration are connected through mass, or:
$F = m a$

Here you have:
$10 = 5 m$ so that $m = \frac{10}{5} = 2 k g$;
Then if you have $a = 8 \frac{m}{{s}^{2}}$
you get:
$F = 2 \cdot 8 = 16 N$
