# The net force on an object of #14000"N"# causes it to accelerate at a rate of #5"m"//"s"^2#. What is the mass of the object?

By Newton's second law, force is given by the product of an object's mass and acceleration as:

Which we can solve for mass (taking magnitudes) as:

We are given:

Therefore, we have:

And we can check that the units work out, as we should get our final mass in kilograms.

To find the mass of the object, you can use Newton's second law, which states that force equals mass times acceleration (F = ma). Rearrange the equation to solve for mass: mass = force / acceleration. Plugging in the given values: mass = 14000 N / 5 m/s^2 = 2800 kg. Therefore, the mass of the object is 2800 kilograms.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
