# How do you solve for a if F=7 1/3 and m=1/5 given Newton's second law states the a=F/m where a is the acceleration, F is the form, and m is the mass?

force = mass * acceleration.....(a)

f = m . a
Given ; $f = 7 + \frac{1}{3} = \frac{7 \cdot 3 + 1}{3} = \frac{22}{3}$unit

m =$\frac{1}{5}$ unit

a = $\frac{f}{m}$

a =$\frac{\frac{22}{3}}{\frac{1}{5}}$

a = $\frac{22 \cdot 5}{3 \cdot 1} = \frac{110}{3} = 36.67 \mathmr{and} 37$ approximately.
