# Question: What Is An Example Of Newton’S Second Law?

## Which of the following is the best example of Newton’s second law?

Newton’s Second Law of Motion says that acceleration (gaining speed) happens when a force acts on a mass (object).

Riding your bicycle is a good example of this law of motion at work.

## How does Newton’s second law apply to sports?

The second law of motion states that force on an object is equal to the mass of the object multiplied by its acceleration. If we apply this law to a football, it tells us that the amount that the ball accelerates depends on the force applied by the quarterback and the mass of the ball.

## How does Newton’s second law apply to soccer?

law 2 in soccer The second law affects the speed of the ball and the player. The more weight the ball has, the slower it goes. The more weight the player has, the slower he can run. Heavier people kick farther than lighter people.

## How do you explain Newton’s second law to a child?

Newton’s Second Law: F = ma: The greater the force the greater the acceleration. The greater the mass, the greater the force needed to move the object. Two objects with different weights (mass) will need different forces to move them and the acceleration levels will be different.

## What are 2 examples of Newton’s second law?

Following are some examples of Newton’s Second Law of motion: If you use the same force to push a truck and a car, the car will have more acceleration than the truck because the car has less mass.

## What is Newton’s second law in simple terms?

Newton’s second law of motion can be formally stated as follows: The acceleration of an object as produced by a net force is directly proportional to the magnitude of the net force, in the same direction as the net force, and inversely proportional to the mass of the object.

## What are 2 examples of Newton’s first law?

The motion of a ball falling down through the atmosphere, or a model rocket being launched up into the atmosphere are both examples of Newton’s first law. The motion of a kite when the wind changes can also be described by the first law.

## What are examples of Newton’s third law?

Other examples of Newton’s third law are easy to find:As a professor paces in front of a whiteboard, he exerts a force backward on the floor. … A car accelerates forward because the ground pushes forward on the drive wheels, in reaction to the drive wheels pushing backward on the ground.More items…•
