A force is applied to a 2.6 kg mass and produces 2.7 m/s^2 acceleration. What acceleration would be produced by the same force applied to 14.9 kg mass? Answer in units of m/s^2

Here is my work, but i wanted to make sure if it was right or not:

2.6(2.7)=7.02

7.02/14.9=.471 m/s^2

  1. Yes, that is correct.
    I would really encourage you to carry the units through from start to finish. It seems like extra work, but it can help detect errors.
