A 6.0 kg object undergoes an acceleration of 2.0 m/s2.a. What is the magnitude of the net force acting on the object?b. If this same force is applied to a 4.0 kg object, what acceleration isproduced?

Use Newton's law
F = m a
a. 6.0 kg x 2.0 m/s^2 = 12 kg m/s^2 (also called newtons)
b. If the mass is reduced by a 2/3 factor, then if the same force is used as in (a), the acceleration (a) will be higher by a 3/2 factor
