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.

$$f=ma$$

f is force, m is mass, a is acceleration

f=200$${a}_{1}$$for the softball and f=150$$a_2$$ for the baseball

Since they both have the same amount of force, then 200$$a_1$$=150$$a_2$$. This means that the ratio of the acceleration of the softball to the baseball is 150:200 or $$\frac{3}{4}$$.
