Second Law of Motion

Newton's second law of motion pertains to the behavior of objects for which all existing forces are not balance. It also states that the acceleration of an object is dependent upon two variable- the net force acting upon the object and the mass of the object. The accelertation of an object depneds directly upon the net force acting upon the object, and inversely upon the mass of the object. A the force acting upon an object is increased, the acceletration of the objects increased. As the mass of an object is increased, the acceleration of the object is decreased

How this law occurs in our everyday life.

Swimming is a perfect example of how this law occurs in our everyday lives. Many swimmers tend to push off the wall of a pool to get a speedy start. The force in this situation is the pushing from your legs, which causes your body to accelerate in the direction of the push.
