Kim L. QuiambaoPH2Y1-1Mr. John Carlo LambrentoNewton's Second Law of MotionOBJECTIVE:To study Newton's Second Law of Motion and its applicationTHEORY:The acceleration produced by particular force acting on a body is directly proportional to the magnitude of the force and inversely proportional to the mass of the body -translated from the Principia's Latin.Base on ordinary experience, you can tell how a force exerted on a body affects its motion. A force may speed up the motion or slow it down depending on the direction of the body. The force produces a change in the velocity. Therefore force causes the body to accelerate.Newton perceived this effect of the force on the motion of an object. The quantitative relationship between force and acceleration is precisely given in his second law of motion. This law states that the acceleration of the body is directly proportional and is in the same direction as the net force applied to it and is inversely proportional to the mass of the body. It can be written mathematically as:a?F/ma= kF/mif k=1 then,F=maWhere:F= net forcea= accelerationm= mass of the bodyTo say that one quantity is proportional to another is to make a precise mathematical statement. Acceleration is directly proportional to the net force. This part of the law says that if the net force is doubled, then the acceleration is also doubled. If it is tripled, then the acceleration is also tripled, and so on. In symbols, if F causes a, th
