Determine the acceleration of a mass of 24 kg when a force of magnitude 6 N acts on it. What is the acceleration if the force were doubled and the mass was halved?

We first find the acceleration:
F     = ma
a     = (F/m)
       = (6/24)
       = 0,25 m.s-2

If the force is doubled and the mass is halved then the acceleration will be four times this amount: 1 m.s-2.

You can check this by doubling the force and halving the mass.
