# If a force of 1000N is required for a car to accelerate at a rate of 2 m/s^2, what is the mass of the car?

Apr 16, 2018

$500 k g$

#### Explanation:

Given,
Force (f) = $1000 N$
Acceleration (a) = $2 m {s}^{-} 2$
Mass (m) = ?
We know that,
Force = mass $\times$ acceleration
$\to 1000 = m \times 2$
$\to 1000 = 2 m$
$\to m = \frac{1000}{2}$
$\therefore M a s s = 500 k g$
