science physics# What is the relationship between mass force and motion?

Last Updated: 9th March, 2020

**motion**provides an explanation for the behavior of objects when

**forces**are applied to the objects. The law states that external

**forces**cause objects to accelerate, and the amount of acceleration is directly proportional to the net

**force**and inversely proportional to the

**mass**of the object.

Furthermore, what is the relationship between force and mass?

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.

Also, what is the relationship between mass and acceleration when force is constant? When **mass** is **constant**, **acceleration** is directly related to **force**. The **relationship** can be described mathematically using the formula **Force** = **mass** • **acceleration**. Third Law: Law of Action–Reaction. **Forces** occur in pairs, and every action (**force**) has an equal and opposite reaction (**force**).

Also to know is, is there a direct relationship between force and mass?

Newton's second law of motion states that **the** acceleration of an object equals **the** net **force** acting on **the** object divided by **the** object's **mass**. According to **the** second law, **there** is a **direct relationship between force** and acceleration and an inverse **relationship between mass** and acceleration.

How does mass affect motion?

Heavier objects (objects with more **mass**) are more difficult to move and stop. Heavier objects (greater **mass**) resist change more than lighter objects. Example: Pushing a bicycle or a Cadillac, or stopping them once moving. The more massive the object (more inertia) the harder it is to start or stop.
