It's a well-known physics formula that force equals mass times acceleration. Jen wants to throw a softball with the same force as Jack throws a baseball. If the softball has a mass of $200$ g and the baseball has a mass of $150$ g, what is the ratio of acceleration of Jen's ball to Jack's? Answer as a fraction in lowest terms.

I hope this is helpful but:

F=ma

f=200for the softball and f=150 for the baseball

Since they both have the same amount of force, then 200=150. This means that the ratio of the acceleration of the softball to the baseball is 150:200 or 3/4.

F = ma

m_{s}a_{s} = m_{b }a_{b}

a_{s }/ a_{b} = m_{b }/ m_{s }= 150/200 = 3/4
