If the force acting on an object stays the same, then the acceleration of the object is inversely proportional to its mass. If an object with a mass of 9 kilograms accelerates at a rate of 6 meters per second per second by a force, find the rate of acceleration of an object with a mass of 2 kilograms that is pulled by the same force. These are my choices:
A. 3 meters per second per second
B. 27 meters per second per second
C. 18 meters per second per second
D. 24 meters per second per second
