I need help determining what impact the following has on force:
The factor of 2 is added to force and the mass is cut by 1/3.
Can anyone help me?
Tahnks!

a factor of 2 is added to force?
like 110+ 2 or 342,453 + 2?
One cannot answer that without knowing the original force. Now if force was changed by a factor of 2,
a=F/m=2/1/3= 6

f = ma
2*f = (1/3)*m*a.
If a is to stay constant (your problem didn't say that but I assume that's what you means), you have effectively multiplied the force by 6? Check my thinking
