You cannot. Force = Mass*Acceleration or Mass*Rate of change of Velocity.

Power is equal to Force times velocity; P=Fv. You are given the 'speed', which I assume to be velocity. You also have acceleration. In order to find F, you need first to find the mass, which you can calculate from the weight, Fg, by dividing by the acceleration due to gravity, 9.8. You then have the mass. From here, multiply mass times acceleration times the velocity.

the final velocity assuming that the mass is falling and that air resistance can be ignored but it is acceleration not mass that is important (can be gravity) final velocity is = ( (starting velocity)2 x 2 x acceleration x height )0.5

Force = m a [ie mass x acceleration ]If the mass is not given it cannot be calculated.

If you have the mass, you can find the acceleration from Newton's Second Law, a=F/m where a is the acceleration, m is the mass, and F is the force. Then the velocity is given by the standard formula v=vo+at where v is the final velocity, vo the velocity at t=0, probably 0 in your case. If so v=at.

the mass does affexct the velocity of acceleration

Force equals mass times acceleration.

Assuming you start from rest (0) and accelerate uniformly. > acceleration = distance / (0.5 * time2), then having found acceleration: > final velocity = acceleration * time

There is not enough information. Force = Mass*Acceleration. Acceleration is the rate of change in velocity. This requires information on change in velocity as well as the time over which the change took place. There is no information at all on the latter.

The formula for finding that out is velocity = distance / mass

Acceleration is the change in velocity over time. Acceleration = change in velocity / time elapsed So, find the initial velocity of the mass (0 if starting from rest) and another velocity that occurs afterwards and find the difference. Then, divide the change in velocity by the time elapsed. If you know the mass of and the force acting on the object, you can use this formula: Force = mass x acceleration Substitute for your known variables and solve algebraically.

momentum = mass x velocity => mass = momentum / velocity

MASS

You can't. The mass is irrelevant to velocity. You need the distance.

Force = mass x acceleration Momentum = mass x velocity

To get the potential energy when only the mass and velocity time has been given, simply multiply mass and the velocity time given.

Mass X Acceleration = velocity

Mass by itself has no effect on velocity. In terminal velocity (velocity of an object falling through a fluid) the mass tovolume ratio (density) can change the final velocity at any given medium density, but in acceleration in a vacuum there is no impact from mass on velocity.

M=f/a

force and mass. acceleration=force divided by mass or the time, final velocity, and initial velocity. acceleration= final velocity minus initial velocity diveded by time

Force = mass x acceleration. Mass must be in kilograms and acceleration must be in meters per second squared.

Momentum=mass*velocity

The slope of velocity is the acceleration of the object and indirectly the force of the object given the its mass.

No, Mass is not a vector. Velocity, Momentum, and Acceleration are.

force=mass x acceleration. you have force lets say 100N. you are given a velocity of lets say 10m/s at the first second. and you are given speed. if you are given one speed, then you are given the change in velocity (your acceleration). if you are given multiple speeds, then you can figure out your change in velocity of the amount of time the speeds are given as (also your acceleration). So lets say you are given a speed of 30m/s at the third second (second second sounds redundant). Assuming acceleration is constant as always, 30-10=20m/s over 2 seconds. So 20/2=10m/s2. now you have force and acceleration. 100= m x 10m/s2. m=10kg.
