For the present question, Newton's second law prevails: F=ma, where F is measured in N (newton), m in kg and acceleration in m s^{-2}.

If m1=1 kg, a=3.25 m s^{-2},

F = m1 * a = 1*3.25 = 3.25 N.

For the second object of mass m2,

3.25 = m2 * 2.75 m s^{-2}

Solve for m2.

From the relation F=ma,

what would the second object's acceleration be if a force twice as large were applied to it?
