    Given:

    Force,F = 100 N

    Acceleration,a = 5 m/s²

    To be calculated:-

    Calculate the mass of a box.

    Solution:-

     \bf \: Force = Mass × Acceleration

    ★Putting the values in the above formula,we get:

     \sf \implies \: 100 = m \times 5

     \sf \implies \: m =  \cancel \dfrac{100}{5}

     \sf \implies \: Mass(m) = 2 \: kg

    Thus,the mass of a box is 2 kg.

    We are given with the amount of force applied and accleration of a certain body and we have to find the mass of the box.

    • Force applied = 100 N
    • Accleration = 5 m/s²

    According to Netwon‘s 2nd law,

    After deriving, we will get that

    • Force = Mass × Accleration

    Plugging the given values to get mass,

    ➝ 100 N = Mass × 5 m/s²

    ➝ Mass = 100 / 5 kg

    ➝ Mass = 20 kg

    Thus, the required mass of the box is 20 kg.
