  1. For the force in Newtons, and using units of kg and m/s^2 fr mass and acceleration, the answer is given by Newton's second-law formula
    F = M a

  2. Memorize this,failing that, get some Henna and write it on your hand. I suggest give memory a try first, you mother would be happier.

    F=ma
    Force is equal to the product of mass times acceleration.
