"1 meter per second" is not a rate of acceleration. "1 meter per second per second" or "1 meter per second2" is. The force required to accelerate 1 kilogram of mass at that rate is called "1 Newton".

You can use Newton's Second Law here: force = mass x acceleration. Your units are in SI, so you don't need any conversion. Answer will be in newtons.

There's an extra "per second" in the question. One "kilogram-meter per second squared" is one "newton".

Force = mass times acceleration F = 1 x 2 = 2 Newtons

Force = Mass * Acceleration = 1 * 2 = 2 Newtons

F = m A = (25) x (8) = 200 newtons

One newton equals the force required to accelerate 1 kilogram of mass at 1 meter per second per second.

A kilogram is a unit of measurement for WEIGHT. A newton (in the meter-kilogram-second system) is the unit of FORCE required to accelerate a mass of one kilogram one meter per second per second, equal to 100,000 dynes.

The force needed can be calculated using Newton's second law, F = m * a, where F is the force, m is the mass of the car (1000 kg), and a is the acceleration (3 m/s^2). Therefore, the force needed would be 3000 Newtons.

9.8 meters per second each second = 9.8 m/s2.

"1 meter per second" is not a rate of acceleration. "1 meter per second per second" or "1 meter per second2" is. The force required to accelerate 1 kilogram of mass at that rate is called "1 Newton".

The force required to accelerate 1 kilogram of mass at 1 meter per second per second is called 1 Newton. This is based on Newton's second law of motion, which states that Force = mass x acceleration.
