#### Explanation:

We must assume that there are no other external forces acting on the object in question. In that case, the net force (which is the sum of all the forces acting on the object) is just

Newton's Second Law states that

where

*net force* acting on the object,

*mass* of the object,

*acceleration* of the object.

When we substitute our values into the equation, we get

Therefore,
