The body moves with an acceleration of 2 m / s2 under the action of a force of 12 N. Determine the body mass.

To determine the mass of an accelerating body, we apply the formula (Newton’s second law): F = m * a, whence we express the mass: m = F / a.

Variables: F – acting force (F = 12 N); a – acceleration acquired by the body (a = 2 m / s2).

Calculation: m = F / a = 12/2 = 6 kg.

Answer: The mass of an accelerating body is 6 kilograms.
