  1. Since f = m a, a = f/m
    a = acceleration in m/s^2
    f = force in N
    m = mass in kg

    Do the numbers.

    I don't understand Newton's second law: Net Force = Mass x Acceleration I don't understand what this says. Does it mean that the higher the mass, the more force it takes to move it the same distance as a lighter mass or something?

    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? Does
