I am new to ROS and Gazebo environment.I am trying to simulate application of force on a body on a friction-less surface with value of slip as 1.0.I am giving force of 1 N on the body's center of mass, according to the equation F=m*a the acceleration should be 1 m/s^2 . But on observing the displacement of body in x-direction, the value of acceleration obtained using the formulae S=ut+1/2at^2 is far less then it should be.Is there any parameter i have to set to get the correct value of acceleration. I have already posted this question on answers.gazebosim.org but could'nt get any answer.

in these cases always include a link to your other/previous question, so we can keep things connected.
