# How fast will an object with a mass of 15 kg accelerate if a force of 85 N is constantly applied to it?

May 19, 2018

Approximately $5.67 \setminus {\text{m/s}}^{2}$.

#### Explanation:

Newton's second law of motion 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 in meters per second squared

So, we got:

$a = \frac{F}{m} = \left(85 \setminus \text{N")/(15 \ "kg}\right)$

$\approx 5.67 \setminus {\text{m/s}}^{2}$
