Q:

What does a= f/m mean? Who found it?

A:

The equation a=F/m or the acceleration is equal to the net force of an object divided by that object's mass, is an equation derived and explained by Sir Issac Newton's second law of motion. Newton's second law of motion states that the force of an object is equal to the mass times the acceleration of that object.
