# How fast will an object with a mass of 16 kg accelerate if a force of 62 N is constantly applied to it?

We have from Newton's second law, $F = m a$ (in scalar notation).
Here we have, $F = 62 N$ and $m = 16 k g$ which simply gives that the acceleration of the body is,
$a = \frac{F}{m} = \frac{62}{16} N k {g}^{-} 1 = 3.87 m {s}^{-} 2$
