what is k?

The Newton's 2nd law of motion gives us a relation between force, acceleration and mass. It is a simple mathematical relation F = ma. So , there is no involvement of k involved in the 2nd law of motion.k is just a proportionality constant.
F is proportinal to m.; F is proportinal to acceleration.
So F = k ma ; when F =1unit , m=1 unit , a =1 unit ; then k=1
