# How fast will an object with a mass of 15 kg accelerate if a force of 35 N is constantly applied to it?

May 24, 2018

$\approx 2.33 \setminus {\text{m/s}}^{2}$

#### Explanation:

We use Newton's second law of motion, which states that,

$F = m a$

where:

• $F$ is the force applied in newtons

• $m$ is the mass of the object in kilograms

• $a$ is the acceleration of the object in meters per second squared

So, we get:

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

$= \left(35 \setminus \text{N")/(15 \ "kg}\right)$

$\approx 2.33 \setminus {\text{m/s}}^{2}$
