What is Newtons Second Law? This law basically is the description of the relationship between force, mass, and acceleration. The unbalanced force acting on an object equals the objects mass times its acceleration.
The Equation Force = mass x acceleration a.k.a. F = ma The mass of the object times the speed it travels equals the amount of force it takes to do so.
How we use this law. If you pushed an empty shopping cart with the force if it was full it would go fast. Newtons second law is a prime example of why because it takes a lot more force to move a full buggy rather than an empty one causing the empty one to be pushed faster.
Isaac Newton himself. He is the guy who invented the laws of motion. Born in the 4 th of January, 1643, and died on the 31 st of March, 1727. July 5, 1687 is when the laws of motion where and hence the second law came into play
Another explanation. Newtons second law can be explained in another way also. The acceleration of an object is proportional to the net force on the object and inversely proportional to the objects mass. Acceleration = force/mass
Another example. A baseball cant move all by itself because it has to have force behind it to move. With newtons second law you can measure how much force it takes to throw the ball anywhere from ten yards to one hundred yards.
