HiI have a questionwe're studying Newton's Laws and my question is:
If I have a constant, nonzero force, how does the accleration change as the mass is changed.
I think it changes proportionallybecause 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

the acceleration is decreasing as you increase the mass while keeping the Force constant....
a=F/M 
Can't you have the acceleration increase as you decrease mass, also?

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

Newton's second law states that if an object has zero acceleration, the net force acting on it is zero. My question is if you have an object at constant acceleration moving downward is there a net force being applied to it?
