Hi-I have a question-we're studying Newton's Laws and my question is:
If I have a constant, non-zero force, how does the accleration change as the mass is changed.

I think it changes proportionally-because the formula F = ma so therefore if 2 times 2 = 4 and you increase one, to make 4, you'd have to decrease slightly the other or you would end up will too much force which woulnd't be constant- yes or no

  • Physics-Please check my explanation-I need to know -

    the acceleration is decreasing as you increase the mass while keeping the Force constant....

    a=F/M

  • Physics-Please check my explanation-I need to know -

    Can't you have the acceleration increase as you decrease mass, also?

  • Physics-Please check my explanation-I need to know -

    according to the equation, the acceleration increase as mass decreases......
