Think about it, which one depends on the other. The equation is F=ma, so which one depends on the other variable in your experiment?

The dependent variables are the measured effects or results of the settings of the independent variables.

Formulas can be rearranged; it's only math

a = F/m is the same relationship.

What matters is what variables you had a "handle on" when you did the experiment (the independent variables), and what values were measured (what depends upon the things you tinkered with).
