How fast will an object with a mass of #4 kg# accelerate if a force of #17 N# is constantly applied to it?
Force = 17 N
Mass = 4 kg
we know that force is equal to the froduct of mass and acceleration of object .
a = 17N/4kg
4.25 meters per second per second
To solve this, we use Newtons 2nd law of motion which states that
This means that a force
So if a body of
This gives us that
Hence, the body accelerates with an acceleration of 4.25 meters per second per second
