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
