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.
