**F**=

*m*

**a**, how can we obtain a general expression for

*m*, the mass? If the equation was scalar, this could easily be done by dividing

*F*by

*a*; however, we are dealing with vectors, and, to my knowledge, a vector divided by another vector is not defined in vector algebra. Therefore, how can we obtain a general expression for

*m*?
