Answer:

Explanation:

To solve this equation ,we need to apply Newton's second law. Which defines

Force = Mass* Acceleration

Mass  = 0.5 g = 0.5*10^-3 Kg

Force  = 20 N

Acceleration = Force / Mass

Acceleration  = 20 N /0.5*10^-3 Kg

Acceleration  = 40000 m/s^2

I believe you meant a mass of 0.5 Kg

In that case, the acceleration would be

Acceleration  = 40 m/s^2
