    F = m * a is the basic, simple formula here. F is force on the object m is mass of the object a is acceleration of the object F / m = a is the algebraically manipulated formula. From the basic formula up there, divide each side by "m".

    F=m*a F=12N M=2kg simple algebra and you come up with Erics eq. F/m=a 12N/2kg=6m/s^2
