What equation supports the second law of motion?
Force=mass times acceleration
The second law of motion is an equation, F=ma. F = Force m= mass a = acceleration This means the equation means the force required to move an object is equivalent to the mass of the object x how fast you want to move it. We all subconsciously know this law, as we know the heavier the object the more force is required to move it. Also, more force is required to move it faster.
Newton's second law of motion states that the acceleration of a body is directly proportional to the net force acting on it and inversely proportional to its mass. So the greater the net force, the greater the acceleration, and the smaller the mass, the greater the acceleration. a = F/m This equation is often written as F = ma.
