# How fast will an object with a mass of 15 kg accelerate if a force of 96 N is constantly applied to it?

Mar 6, 2018

$6.4 m / {s}^{2}$

#### Explanation:

Force=mass times acceleration, or $F = m \cdot a$
We can rework this to:

$a = \frac{F}{m} = \frac{96 N}{15 k g} = 6.4 \frac{N}{k g}$

And since the Newton is defined as $N = \frac{k g \cdot m}{s} ^ 2$

This results in: $a = 6.4 \frac{\cancel{k g} \cdot m}{s} ^ 2 \div \cancel{k g} = 6.4 m / {s}^{2}$
