For example, imagine applying a 500 N resultant force to a small car, and applying a 1000 N resultant force on another small car of the same mass . Obviously, the one where a larger force is applied. (Keep in mind that mass is constant. Because mass is inversely proportional to acceleration.)

Newton’s second law of motion describes the relationship between force and acceleration. They are directly proportional. If you increase the force applied to an object, the acceleration of that object increases by the same factor. In short, force equals mass times acceleration.

**How is force related to acceleration and mass?**

It is summarized by the equation: Force (N) = mass (kg) × acceleration (m/s2). Thus, an object of constant mass accelerates in proportion to the force applied. Gravity is the variable force of attraction between any two objects.

**How is force related to acceleration quizlet?**

Law of Acceleration – The acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the force acting on it and inversely proportional to the mass of the object.

### What is the relationship between force and pressure?

According to the formula P = F/A, the pressure is directly proportional to the force, i.e. if force is more, the pressure will also be more. The pressure is inversely proportional to area, so if the area is small, the pressure will be more. Pressure cannot exist without force.

### Does force mass acceleration?

Force (N) = mass (kg) × acceleration (m/s²). Thus, an object of constant mass accelerates in proportion to the force applied. If the same force is applied to two objects of differ- ent mass, the heavier object has less acceleration than the lighter object (Figure 1).

**When force is increased What happens to acceleration?**

As we increase the force on an object the acceleration increases proportionally. Since the mass does not change as the acceleration increases, we can say that force is equal to acceleration. Therefore, if you double the force you double the acceleration.

**When force is increased What happens to acceleration quizlet?**

The acceleration of an object increases with increased force, and decreases with increased mass. The acceleration is in the same direction as the net force.
