Question

If the mass of the body increases, the acceleration of the body is likely to


  1. remains the same 

  2. increase 

  3. decrease 

  4. sometimes increase and sometime decrease


Solution

The correct option is C

decrease 


According to Newton’s Second Law of Motion, the change in momentum of a body per unit time is directly proportional to the unbalanced force acting on the body and the change in momentum takes place in the direction of the unbalanced force of the body. It can be represented as F = ma. Fa = m. Mass and acceleration are inversely related, hence if the mass of the object increases, the acceleration of the body decreases and vice versa.
