# Acceleration Using Force and Mass Calculator

Our acceleration using force and mass calculator can **obtain a body's acceleration from its mass and the force applied to it.**

Keep reading while we explain Newton's second law (force, mass, and acceleration formula) along with the following:

- How to find acceleration with mass and force;
- How to find force with mass and acceleration; and

## Newton's second law - force, mass, and acceleration formula

Newton's second law states the following: the change of motion of an object is proportional to the force impressed; it is made in the direction of the straight line in which the force is impressed.

Which translates to the following formula:

$\overrightarrow{F} = m\overrightarrow{a}$

where:

- $m$ is the object's mass in
**kg**; - $a$ is its acceleration in
**m/s²**; and - $F$ is the force causing this acceleration in
**newtons N**(*1 N = 1 kg * m/s²*).

This formula is useful if we want to find the **force** acting upon an object if we know its **mass** and **acceleration**.

Let's see how to get any parameter using the others.

## How to find acceleration with mass and force

The main topic of our acceleration using force and mass calculator is, of course, **acceleration**. So, how do we find it? Using Newton's second law of motion By rearranging this equation, we can work out the acceleration - all you need to do is divide the force applied to an object by its mass:

$a = \frac{F}{m}$

For example, if you have a force of `10 N`

and a mass of `2 kg`

, the acceleration would be calculated as `10/2 = 5 m/s²`

🙋 **Tip:** you can input the *force*, *mass*, or *acceleration* using any units in our acceleration using force and mass calculator. Our tool will promptly convert the units during its calculation to get the correct result.

## How to find mass with acceleration and force

Lastly, if we want to find an object's **mass** knowing its acceleration and the force we apply to it, we should use the following formula instead:

$m = \frac{F}{a}$

Alternatively, **use our acceleration using force and mass calculator!** Input *any two* parameters, and it will automatically fill the other with the result.
