# Acceleration using force and mass calculator

The **acceleration using force and mass calculator** helps you find the acceleration of an object of a specific mass when a specific force is applied to it. Read on to learn more about how to use this calculator, how force, acceleration, and mass relate to each other, and also some examples!

## How do I calculate acceleration using force and mass?

To calculate the acceleration using force and mass, do the following:

- Find the
**mass**of the object in kg. - Measure the
**force**applied on it in Newtons. - Calculate the acceleration by
**dividing the force by mass**. - This will give you the acceleration using the force and mass values!

For example, if a **force of 50 N** is applied to an object of **mass 10 kg**, then the acceleration experienced by it will be:

**a = 50/10 = 5 m/s ^{2}**

### What is the formula to find acceleration from force and mass?

** a = F / m** is the formula to find

**acceleration from force and mass values**. So according to this formula, we'll do the following:

- We will measure the force (in Newtons) and mass (in kg).
- We will divide the force (in Newtons) by mass (in kg).
- This will give us the acceleration in m/s
^{2}.

### What is the acceleration produced by a force of 12 N on a body of mass 3 kg?

**4 m/s ^{2}** is the acceleration produced by a force of 12 N on a body of mass 3 kg. This is obtained by dividing the force value by the mass, which gives us:

**12 N / 3 kg = 4 m/s**as the acceleration.
