If a force of 30 N imparts an acceleration of 5 to an object and we desire only one fifth of that acceleration, then we apply only one fifth of that force. Take the 30 N and divide it by 5 and we find that 6 N is the force required to give our test object an acceleration of 1.

The force required is 50 newtons or 5.1kgf.

Force equals mass times acceleration. To change a speed, you must apply some force (either positive or negative) to give the object some acceleration. How quickly the object's speed changes will correspond to the force given divided by the mass of the object. (ie, the acceleration)

There are many different units, but the SI unit is called Newtons. This is the force required to give an object of mass 1 kg. an acceleration of 1 m/sec/sec.

unbalanced forces cause acceleration, an object in freefall has gravity as an unbalanced force.

If you are finding force, you most likely already know the mass and acceleration of an object. Multiply the mass by the acceleration to find the force (units of force is newtons).

Greater acceleration, F=ma.

The force required is 70,310 newtons.

There is some confusion here. 500 newtons IS a force. You don't "give a force an acceleration". You can accelerate an object (which has a mass), but not a force.

Balance the force on all direction and after all cancellation, the remain force give the direction the object go. For matter of speed and acceleration, check it mass and find out the acceleration from force.

unbalanced forces cause acceleration, an object in freefall has gravity as an unbalanced force.

F = M a = (4.52) x (1.5) = 6.78 newtons
