# What is the relationship between force and acceleration?

Newton's second law of motion describes the relationship between force and acceleration. They are directly proportional. If you increase the force applied to an object, the acceleration of that object increases by the same factor. In short, force equals mass times acceleration.

Correspondingly, what is the relation between mass and acceleration?

A: Force is mass times acceleration, or F= m x a. This means an object with a larger mass needs a stronger force to be moved along at the same acceleration as an object with a small mass. This is Newton's Second Law of Motion.

What can you say about the relationship between mass and acceleration?

The relationship between mass and acceleration is described in Newton's Second Law of Motion. His Second Law states that the more mass an object has, more force is necessary for it to accelerate.

How is the acceleration of an object related to its mass?

Newton's first law says that an object remains in uniform motion unless acted on by a net force. When a net force is applied, the object accelerates. Newton's second law details the relationship between net force, the mass, and the acceleration: The acceleration of an object is in the direction of the net force.
