To determine

In an experiment performed in a space station, a force of 60 N causes an object to have an acceleration of 4m/s2. What is the object’s mass?

Explanation

Given info:

Force acting on the object F=60 N

Acceleration = a=4 m/s2.

Formula used:

An object with mass m gets accelerated when an external force act on it. The net force is calculated based on Newton’s second law which gives force as a product of mass and acceleration
