Solution

## Newton's second law shows that there is a direct relationship between force and acceleration. It states that "Force acting on a body is equal to the product of its mass and acceleration" or, F = m a We know that force acting on a body is equal to change in moementum per unit time (from Newton's second law) Thus, when the momentum of a body remains constant force acting on it will be zero. i.e. F = 0 , when momentum remains constant.
