## Newtons 2nd Law of Motion

The second law states that an object acted on by an unbalanced force will accelerate in the direction of that force. Also the definition of ACCELERATION is change in velocity (speed and direction).

The second law states that an object acted on by an unbalanced force will accelerate in the direction of that force. Also the definition of ACCELERATION is change in velocity (speed and direction).

Now my example of newton’s 2nd law is, well let’s say that a kid pushes this desk in front of him while he is sitting in his desk getting pushed back because when you add force you get acceleration.

How the desk pushes back it’s because when there is more force being applied there will be more acceleration. Well when you are looking for force applied then you need to do the formula (F=MxA) Force = Mass x Acceleration. So how you would find it would be by how much mass and acceleration to the desk and that’s how you would find the force.
