The acceleration experienced by an object will be proportional to the applied force and inversely proportional to its mass. If there are multiple forces, they can be added as vectors and it is the net force that matters.
Newton's second law of motion and the effects of force and mass on acceleration. Direct and inverse relationships between force, mass and acceleration.
Elevator problems and how acceleration affects the normal force are explained in this video with an example.
Calculating the acceleration of an object using free-body diagrams and F[net] = ma
Determining the net force acting on an object from a free-body diagram
Use F=ma to solve for and know the relationships between force, mass, and acceleration, know that w=mg is a version of Newton's Second Law.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Newton's Second Law.
Demonstrates Newton's second law of motion through the principle of applied force.
This study guide looks at Newton's three laws, free body diagrams, and types of forces, including the force of gravity, normal force, and friction force.
These flashcards help you study important terms and vocabulary from Newton's Second Law.
