#### Explanation:

We can use Newton's second law of motion, which states that the acceleration of a body is directly proportional to the net force acting on it and inversely proportional to its mass, which is represented by the formula

Substitute the given values into the formula.

Rewrite the formula with the units that make up a Newton.
