If you push a 900N refrigerator with the same force as you lift a 40N dumbbell, the dumbbell will move faster. which of Newton’s laws is this an example of? Explain how you know please. i know it's not the 3rd law.

    Newton's second law. The heavier object has more mass, and acceleration is direc tly proportional to force and inversely proportional to mass.

    Thankyou so much dude!
