The net force on an object is equal to the mass of the object multiplied by its acceleration.
The second law of motion states that:

FORCE=MASS*ACCELERATION
A body of mass m subject to a net force F undergoes an acceleration a that has the same direction as the force and a magnitude that is directly proportional to the force and inversely proportional to the mass, i.e., F = ma. Alternatively, the total force applied on a body is equal to the time derivative of linear momentum of the body.

Newton's second law of motion states that the acceleration of a body is directly proportional to the force acting on it and inversely proportional to its mass, a = F/m. The equation is more familiar as F = ma.
