In this case, acceleration is positive. Negative acceleration would cause the object to slow down (decelerate.)

No, but it does cause it to eat less. For when a dog has worms it tends to eat much more and would whine for food, because it tries to rid of it.

Why would a 1989 Honda Accord stall on acceleration?

There are several things that can cause your 1989 Honda Accord to stall on acceleration. The most common cause is a plugged or dirty air filter.

What would cause an object to have a smaller acceleration?

Newton taught everybody that Net Force = Mass * Acceleration. Since we're talking about acceleration, we can rearrange that to be Acceleration = Net Force / Mass. If you want to decrease the acceleration of an object, you would need to decrease the net force applied to it or increase its mass (or both).

Would quick acceleration cause damage to a car?

Maybe. Depends on speed of car

What happends to acceleration if you double the force being applied?

Then the acceleration would also double.Then the acceleration would also double.Then the acceleration would also double.Then the acceleration would also double.

What would cause an object to have smaller acceleration?

increasing the mass of the object, keeping the net force constant

Would a net force of 100Newton cause more or less acceleration than a net force of 10Newton?

Take a look at Newton's Second Law. Other things being equal, more force will cause more acceleration.

An object accelerates at 3 meters per second when a 10 newton force is applied to it What force would cause this object to accelerate at 6 meters per second?

A 20-newton force would cause acceleration at 6 m/sec The acceleration is given by the formula F=ma (Force = mass x acceleration) so for the same mass, doubling the force doubles the acceleration for the same mass.
