Solution

## The correct options are B momentum C velocity D accelerationUsing Newton's second law, if the mass of a body and the net force acting on it is given, we can determine its acceleration using F= ma. Once the acceleration of a body is determined, we can find the velocity of the body using the equations of motion. Once the velocity is known, momentum can also be determined. Hence, options B, C, D are correct.  Suggest Corrections  0      Similar questions  Related Videos   Second Law of Motion
