A body weighing 0.5 kg moves under the action of a constant force of 10 N. Find the acceleration imparted to the body by this force.
Initial data: m (body weight) = 0.5 kg; F (the value of the constant force under which the body moves) = 10 N.
The acceleration that was imparted to the body by a constant force is determined by the formula (Newton’s second law): F = m * a and a = F / m.
Calculation: a = 10 / 0.5 = 20 m / s ^ 2.
Answer: The acceleration of the body is 20 m / s ^ 2.
