How Does Mass Affect Acceleration?


Acceleration is rate of change of velocity. Velocity depends on the force applied on body. Force is direct function of mass. Hence mass affects acceleration.

According to Newton's second law, force equals mass times acceleration.
The more mass the object has the more it resists any change in its motion. Stronger
Mass and acceleration are inversely proportional. That is, if all else is equal, more mass=less acceleration. This is demonstrated by Newton's second law, which states that a=F/m,
1. Determine mass and force. For example, an electric toy car motor exerts a force of 11 newtons and has a mass of 40 grams. 2. Divide the force by the mass. In the example, 11 newtons
