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
Second law of motion states the following:
Therefore, the object will accelerate based on the direction of the force.
When mass is kept constant, F∝a
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 ⇒m∝1a, when force is kept constant.
That is, if the force is constant, on increasing the mass leads to the decrease in acceleration.
