# How fast will an object with a mass of 3 kg accelerate if a force of 8 N is constantly applied to it?

Oct 29, 2016

The acceleration is $\frac{8}{3} m {s}^{-} 2$

#### Explanation:

Apply Newton's second law, $F = m a$

F is force in N
m is mass in kg
a is acceleration in $m {s}^{-} 2$

So the acceleration is $= \frac{F}{m} = \frac{8}{3} m {s}^{-} 2$
