# How fast will an object with a mass of 8 kg accelerate if a force of 44 N is constantly applied to it?

Jan 5, 2016

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

So $a = \frac{F}{m}$

So $a = \frac{44}{8} = 5.5 m {s}^{-} 2$

#### Explanation:

Newton's second law is $F = m a$
Where $F$ is the net force, $m$ is the mass of the body, and $a$ is the body's acceleration.
Rearrange this equation and substitute in your values to find the answer, as above.
