## 2.8 m/s²

Explanation:

The acceleration of an object given it’s mass and the force acting on it can be found by using the formula

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

f is the force

m is the mass

From the question we have

$$a = \frac{4200}{1500} = \frac{42}{15} \\ = 2.8$$

We have the final answer as

### 2.8 m/s²

Hope this helps you
