HELP!!! I can't figure out this stupid bowling prob. for my life.?

I found that Work= 84N (i think this is supposed to help solve the a, since solving for W was the 1st part)

When you lift a bowling ball with a force of 95 N, the ball accelerates upward with an acceleration a. If you lift with a force of 106 N, the ball's acceleration is 2a.

Find the acceleration a.

    Your question is not complete. Your question makes no sense.

    First of all, the work is measures in JULES (J) NOT NEWTONS (N).

    Edit this question and ask the question exactly as it is.

    If you want to try it for yourself, just use Newton's second law of motion:

    ma = F


    m is the mass of the bowling ball in Kilograms

    a = the acceleration of the bowling ball in m/s^2

    F is the applied force to the bowling ball in N.
