# How fast will an object with a mass of 15 kg accelerate if a force of 36 N is constantly applied to it?

Feb 7, 2016

$a = 2 , 4 \frac{m}{s} ^ 2$

#### Explanation:

$F = m \cdot a$
$36 = 15 \cdot a$
$a = \frac{36}{15}$
$a = 2 , 4 \frac{m}{s} ^ 2$

Use the general Newton Law $F = m a$
F = 36N and m = 15kg, solve for a?
$a = \frac{F}{m}$ substitute and solve
