force = mass*acceleration 15 = 58 * x x = 15 / 58 x = 0.26m/s²

                                 Force = (mass) x (acceleration) If the full 15N is pointing parallel to the ground, then                                    15 N  =  (58 kg) x (acceleration). Divide each side by  58 kg:                   Acceleration = 15 N / 58 kg                                                          = (15 kg-m/s²) / (58 kg)                                                          = (15/58) (kg-m/kg-s²)                                                          =  0.26 m/s² .
