The relation between acceleration, mass and force is given by:
Force = Mass x acceleration
As per Newton’s second law of motion, acceleration is directly proportional to the force applied, provided the mass remains constant(F=ma).
- The larger the force greater would be the acceleration.
- Push on an object of a certain mass, and it accelerates based on the amount of force and mass.
- A small force with a large mass results in a slow acceleration, and a large force with a small mass gives a fast acceleration.
- What happens when there’s no force? A force of zero on any mass gives zero acceleration.
