The acceleration of the object is
Explanation:
Before we solve this question, we have to assume something.

The force of friction,
#F_"F"# , will be ignored. 
No direction is specified, however, a force is applied to the object. The movement produced will be referred to as motion in a positive direction.
The formula we are using is:
=> where
If we ignore friction, the only force is the applied force,
We can rearrange the equation
=>
#a=F_"NET"/m#
#=40/15#
#=2.67#
Therefore, the acceleration of the object is
Hope this helps :)
