###### Asked in Science, Physics

### Can your net force and acceleration be in opposite directions?

No, they are always in the same direction, as expressed in
Newton's Second Law, which is usually expressed as: F=ma (force =
mass x acceleration). In this equation, acceleration is a vector,
so when multiplying it by a mass (which is NOT a vector), you get
another vector that points in the same direction.

###### Asked in Science, Isaac Newton

### What is the effect of acceleration of the mass to the acceleration of the object?

The mass affects the acceleration, as expressed in Newton's
Second Law. Solving for acceleration, you get:a = F/m
In other words, assuming the net force doesn't change, with more
mass you get less acceleration.

###### Asked in Gravity

### What is the dimensional formula of acceleration due to gravity?

An acceleration is a velocity divided by a time, so you
have:
acceleration = velocity / time
acceleration = (distance / time) / time
acceleration = distance / time2
The gravitational field can also be expressed as force / mass;
this is equivalent to distance / time2.
