Why does the object with less mass have a larger acceleration?

Newton's Second Law says force = mass * acceleration. If you push on two objects with the same force, the object with the smaller mass will have a greater acceleration.


Does a smaller object with the same force will accelerate the same than a larger object?

The smaller object will have a larger acceleration than the larger object. This is because, from Newton's second law, the acceleration of a body is given by: a = F/m where a is acceleration F is resultant force and m is mass F is constant, so acceleration is inversely proportional to mass. Hence, the smaller object will have a larger acceleration.


When the mass of an object is halved what is the resulting acceleration?

When the mass of an object, the resulting acceleration doubles as there is less space to cause friction against the object.


Is the acceleration due to gravity dependent on the mass of an object?

yes the less mass it has the more acceleration.


What effect does mass have an acceleration?

If you apply the same amount of force to two different objects, the one which has less mass will have larger acceleration. In other words, a heavier object requires more force to get the same acceleration.


Why is the relationship of force acceleration and mass fma?

This is easier to visualize if you rearrange, solving for acceleration: a = F/m. What this means is that a larger force will produce a larger acceleration. It also means that, since mass is in the denominator, in the case of a larger mass, there will be less acceleration. In other words, a more massive object is harder to accelerate (it is harder to speed it up or slow it down).


How is the acceleration of the object is affected when the mass of the object is doubled?

F=ma, a=F/m. Since the mass is in the denominator, more mass means less acceleration.


Will the mass of an object affect its force?

Yes. The force =mass x acceleration, f=ma. The larger the mass the larger the force.


Using the second law equation the object the larger mass has a smaller blank?

Using the second law equation the object the larger mass has a smaller blank? Let me make a correction to your question!Using the same force, Newton's second law equation states the object with the larger mass has a smaller blank?Using the same force, Newton's second law equation states the object with the larger mass has a smaller acceleration?Force = mass * accelerationF = m * a, If force is constant, then the mass and acceleration are inversely related. Mass goes up, acceleration goes down. Heavy object is harder to accelerate.


What affects the acceleration?

According to Newton's Second Law, a = F/m. That means that acceleration is caused by a force; that a greater force will result in greater acceleration; and that a larger mass (of the object on which the force acts) will result in less acceleration.


Do object with more mass accelerate faster than object with less mass?

No, an object with less mass accelerates faster than an object with more mass. We can prove this by seeing the relation between the following two formulas. 1. Acceleration = Force/Mass 2. Acceleration = Change in Velocity/Change in time From the first formula, we see that, if the mass increases, the acceleration of the object decreases since mass and acceleration are inversely proportional to each other. If we come to the second formula, as acceleration of the object decreases, then rate of change of time must increase since they are also inversely proportional to each other. Thus, an object with less mass accelerates faster than an object with more mass.


Why does an object that has more mass fall with the same acceleration as an object that has less mass?

Because the force is proportional to the mass also, and when the formula for acceleration is used we find that acceleration due to gravity for all objects is equal.



If the mass of an object is doubled what happens to the acceleration of that object?

If the mass of an object doubles while the force remains constant, the acceleration of that object will be halved. force=mass*acceleration; therefore acceleration=force/mass


What happens to the acceleration of an object if its mass increases?

If the mass of an object increases, what happens to the acceleration?


Why force changes the speed of an object?

Force = Mass * Acceleration or Acceleration = Force / MassThe Mass is the mass of the object and the Acceleration is the change of speed of the object due to the Force.


When does an object undergoes acceleration and why?

An mass object undergoes acceleration when there is a force applied to the mass. The acceleration is proportional to the force and inverse to the mass, a=F/mass.


How does mass effect acceleration?

Mass is the amount of matter on an object so if acceleration depends on the mass of the object.


Why is the acceleration due to gravity the same for a brick and a sponge?

Because the acceleration depends on the gravitational force on the object. But the gravitational force on the object depends on its mass ... More mass = more force. Objects with less mass have less force on them, and objects with more mass have more force on them, and the force on each object is exactly enough so that each object winds up falling with the same acceleration.


Why doesn't a heavier rock fall faster when the force of gravity is twice as much on two kg object verse a one kg object?

Because it takes more force to give a larger mass the same acceleration. So it all balances out ... less force of gravity on a smaller mass, more force of gravity on a larger mass, always produces the same acceleration.


Why is the mass of an object same on the moon as it is on earth but the weight is different?

Mass is the amount of matter in an object. It does not change based on gravity. Weight is the force an object exerts 'downward' due to gravitational acceleration. Force = (mass)*(acceleration). Acceleration due to gravity is less on the Moon than on Earth.


If the mass of an object is tripled how would the acceleration change?

It would depend on what force is driving the acceleration. If that force is gravity, then acceleration is constant irrespective of variations in mass. All else being equal and presuming the acceleration is by the same exerted force on both the larger and smaller object, the larger object would experience 1/3 the acceleration. (The formula for determining the force is F = ma , the mass times the acceleration. For the same F, and m2 is 3m, then a2 must equal a/3. )


How does the mass of an object affect its acceleration?

When an object is falling in a gravity field, its mass does not affect its acceleration. If under the influence of friction then it takes more energy to accelerate it the larger mass it has, here on Earth. The larger the mass the more potential it has to do work if it is above the surface of the earth than a smaller mass. But in turn, to get it to the higher point more work must be done for a larger mass than a smaller mass.


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.


If the mass of an object is increased with no change in the force applied what will be the difference in its acceleration?

What you are wanting to know is found in Newton's Second Law. The equation used is Acceleration = (Net force)/(Mass) or Force equals mass times acceleration; [F = m * a] So, if the mass is increased but the force remains constant, then the acceleration will decrease. (For the same force applied, larger masses experience less acceleration than smaller masses.)
