could you please explain newton's second law of motion?

Asked by brijmmc | 5th Oct, 2009, 11:35: AM

Expert Answer:

The second law of motion determines the effect of net force on a body.

The time rate of change of momentum of a body is equal to the net (resultant) external force acting on the body.

force  = change of momentum/time = (final momentum - initial momentum)/time

Linear momentum = mass x velocity.

These expressions simplify to force = mass x acceleration.
