# How fast will an object with a mass of 16 kg accelerate if a force of 88 N is constantly applied to it?

May 1, 2018

Given,

$m = 16 \text{kg}$

$\Sigma F = 88 \text{N}$

Now, recall one of the most important laws of physics,

$\Sigma F = m a$

Hence the object will accelerate at a magnitude of,

=> a = (SigmaF)/m approx (5.5"m")/"s"^2
