# How fast will an object with a mass of 24 kg accelerate if a force  30 N is constantly applied to it?

Jun 29, 2018

$a = 1.25$

#### Explanation:

$F = m a$
where F=force in newtons ($N$)
m is mass in kilograms ($k g$)
a is acceleration in metres per second squared ($\frac{m}{s} ^ 2$)

$30 = 24 a$
$a = \frac{30}{24} = \frac{5}{4} = 1.25$

color(violet)("Acceleration " a = 1.25 m * sec^-2

#### Explanation:

$\text{Force = mass x Acceleration i.e } F = m a$

Given : F = 30 N, m = 24 Kg, a = ?

$a = \frac{30}{24} = 1.25 m \cdot {\sec}^{-} 2$
