A 30-06 bullet has a mass of 0.010 kg. If the average force on the bullet is 7900 N, what is the bullet's average acceleration?

Is there a formula for this

You should be familar with Newton's laws yes?

Force is equal to mass times acceleration!

$F=ma$

You know two of the three things in this equation.
