# What is the mass of the body if under the action of force 8H the body moves with an acceleration of 0.5 m / s2?

July 26, 2021 | education

| In order to find the mass of a body, you need to use Newton’s second law:

F = m * a,

where

F is the force acting on the body,

m – body weight,

a is the acceleration with which a body of mass m moves under the action of force F.

Let us express the mass m from Newton’s law:

m = F / a.

Substitute the numerical values from the condition of the problem:

m = F / a = 8 / 0.5 = 16 (kg).

Answer: m = 16 (kg).
