#### Explanation:

Knowing an object's mass and the net force acting on it, we can find the acceleration using Newton's 2nd Law. The formula that applies Newton's 2nd Law is

Solving for

The force on the 16 kg object is 8 N, plugging that data into the last equation

#### Explanation:

Newton's second law states that

So, we need to solve for acceleration, and we rearrange the equation into:

Plugging in the given values, we get
