Newtons Laws of Motion

What describes unequal forces acting on an object - results in change in the object's motion?

Newton's 2nd Law of Motion states that F = m * a, where F = the net force acting on an object [N]; m = the mass of the object [kg]; and a = acceleration [m/s2] . If the motion is linear, then we can consider scalar operations on F and a. If the force is a vector, then a has to be a vector too.
