# How fast will an object with a mass of 16 kg accelerate if a force of 12 N is constantly applied to it?

Jan 12, 2016

The acceleration would be $0.75 \frac{m}{s} ^ 2$

#### Explanation:

You would use the equation $F = m a$ where F is the force (12 N) and m is the mass (16kg). If you rearrange this formula, you get:
$a = \frac{F}{m}$

$a = \frac{12 N}{16 k g}$

$a = 0.75 \frac{m}{s} ^ 2$
