Newton’s Second Law of Motion is also known as the Law of Acceleration. According to this law, F=ma where F is the force being applied to the object, m is the mass of the object, and a is the acceleration experienced by the object. When all other variables are equal, the greater the force, the greater the acceleration. When all other variables or equal, the greater the mass, the less the acceleration. This explains why greater force is required to move an object with greater mass. Continue reading →
