0Newton'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.

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

yes the less mass it has the more 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.

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).

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

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? 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.

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.

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.

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.

F=MA the object with greater mass will have less acceleration

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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. )

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.

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.

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.)
