The measurement of differential cross section of a Z boson produced in association with jets is presented. The cross section is presented with respect to various jet kinematic variables where the Z bosons are reconstructed from opposite sign lepton pairs. The analysis is based on data of proton proton collisions with the centre of mass energy of 8 TeV collected in 2012 by the CMS experiment at LHC corresponding to 19.8 fb −1 of integrated luminosity. Obtained results are compared with different
