Newton's second law of motion pertains to the behavior of objects for which all existing forces are not balanced. The second law states that the acceleration of an object is dependent upon two variables - the net force acting upon the object and the mass of the object

It states that the rate of change of momentum of an object is proportional to the applied unbalanced force in the direction of the force. i.e F = ma .

rate of change of momentum is directly proportional to the force applied d(P)/dt∝ F (force applied)

The second law of motion states that 'acceleration is produced when an unbalanced force acts on an object (mass). The more mass the object has the more net force has to be used to move it.' Examples of Newton s 2nd Law 1. If you use the same force to push a truck and push a car, the car will have more... read more
The second law of motion states that 'acceleration is produced when an unbalanced force acts on an object (mass). The more mass the object has the more net force has to be used to move it.' Examples of Newton’s 2nd Law 1. If you use the same force to push a truck and push a car, the car will have more acceleration than the truck, because the car has less mass. 2. It is easier to push an empty shopping cart than a full one, because the full shopping cart has more mass than the empty one. This means that more force is required to push the full shopping cart. read less

Force being experienced by a body is directly proportional to the acceleration of that body. acceleration means motion ( say velocity). No motion means no force. So F = ma. where m is the mass of that body.

acceleration of an object as produced by a net force is directly proportional to magnitude of force and inversely proportional to its mass of the object. During my class i can explain u in detail.

It states that the forced applied on a body is directly proportional to mass of the body on which the force is being applied ,where a is proportional variable known as accelaration.

The second law of motion states that acceleration is produced when an unbalanced force acts on an object (mass). The more mass the object has the more net force has to be used to move it. Here it wants to say that you need to apply more force to move an object which has more mass. You will need more... read more

It states that the rate of change of momentum of an object is proportional to the applied unbalanced force in the direction of the force F=ma= m(dv/dt) = (mdv)/dt = dp/dt Where F = force applied m = mass of the body, and a = acceleration produced. P = Momentu...
