Question

Choose the correct statement regarding second law of motion?

Statement 1: The law states that whenever a force acts on a particular object, the object will accelerate based on the direction of the force

Statement 2: The law states that as long as the mass of an object is constant, increasing the force exerted onto it will also increase its acceleration

Statement 3: The law states that force remains constant, and then the increase of the mass of the object will cause acceleration to decrease



Correct Answer
A
All statements can be explained by second law of motion
Your Answer
B
Only statement 2 can be explained by second law of motion
Your Answer
C
Statement 2 and 3 can be explained by second law of motion
Your Answer
D
Only statement 1 can be explained by second law of motion.

Solution

The correct option is A All statements can be explained by second law of motion

Second law of motion states the following:
F=m×a
Therefore, the object will accelerate based on the direction of the force.
When mass is kept constant, Fa
i.e, if the mass of the object is constant, then on increasing the force exerted on the object will also increase its acceleration.

m=Fa m1a, when force is kept constant.
That is, if the force is constant, on increasing the mass leads to the decrease in acceleration.
