Physics forces unit

I was wondering, how I would find the ratio of force to acceleration? I am doing an assignment where i had to find the force applied and the measured acceleration but I don't know how to find the ratio of force to acceleration.

Thanks in advance!

  1. F = m*a
    If you know any 2 of the 3, you can calculate the third:

    m = F/a.
