Force 0.5 N acts on a body weighing 1 kg, determine the acceleration with which the body moves.


F = 0.5 Newton – the force that acts on the body;

m = 1 kilogram – body weight.

It is required to determine a (meter per second squared) the acceleration with which the body is moving.

To find the acceleration of body motion, you need to use the following formula (Newton’s second law):

F = m * a, hence:

a = F / m = 0.5 / 1 = 0.5 m / s ^ 2.

Answer: the body moves with an acceleration equal to 0.5 meters per second squared.
