explain newtons second law of motion in your own words
Newton's second law of motion explains how an object will change velocity if it is pushed or pulled upon. This law states that if you place force on an object, it will accelerate, and it will change its velocity in the direction of the force. [ This acceleration is directly proportional to the force. This acceleration is inversely proportional to the mass of the object. For example, if you are
pushing equally on two objects, and one of the objects has five times more mass than the other, it will accelerate at one fifth the acceleration of the other. ]

newtons first law of motion diagram
Weegy: 1 Newton's first law: law of inertia A physical body will remain at rest, or continue to move at a constant velocity, unless an outside net force acts upon it. [ [ 2 Newton's second law: law of resultant force Rate of change of momentum is proportional to the resultant force producing it and takes place in the direction of that force. 3 Newton's third law: law of reciprocal actions To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. ] ] User: newtons first law of motion equation (More)
