Solution

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. the acceleration of an object depends directly upon the net force acting upon the object, and inversely upon the mass of the object. as the force acting upon an object is increased, the acceleration of the object is increased. as the mass of an object is increased, the acceleration of the object is decreased.
A cricket player lower his hand while catching a cricket ball because it decreases the rate of change of momentum by increasing the time so, the ball will exert a lesser force on the hands of the fielder, and the fielder will not get hurt
