# How much force is required to accelerate a 2 kg mass at 3 m/s^2?

Nov 1, 2016

Force required to accelerate the body is $6 N .$

#### Explanation:

According to Sir Isaac Newton's Second Law of Motion,
Force $\left(F\right) =$Mass $\left(m\right) \times$Acceleration $\left(a\right) .$
$\therefore F = m a .$
$\therefore F = \left(2 k g\right) \times \left(3 \frac{m}{s} ^ 2\right) .$
$\therefore F = 6 k g \frac{m}{s} ^ 2 = 6$ Newton. $= 6 N .$

Therefore, Force required to accelerate the body is $6 N .$ (answer).
