Newton's Second Law is (in Cajori (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florian_Cajori)'s translation):

"The change of motion is proportional to the motive force impressed; and is made in the direction of the right line in which that force is

impressed."

The first phrase says the [net] force causes a change in the motion, by which Newton meant in the quantity of motion, which we call

the momentum and represent as mv. The second phrase states that force is a vector quantity. Thus the law can be written:

) vm(d

am =

ten

td

The net force applied on an object causes an acceleration that is inversely proportional to the mass of the object. Larger mass makes

Important Notes

When applying Newton's second law in problem solving the most important aspects to remember are:

Our Modeling Approach to Problem Solving emphasizes that all the core physical principles in mechanics contain a LAW OF CHANGE an expression

that describes how interactions change motion. The law of change specifies how some state variable representing motion will be changed by some

function of the force called the AGENT OF CHANGE. Mathematically the form of these laws is that the first time derivative of the motion variable

equals some function of the force (e.g. the external force, the torque) In the case of Newton's Second Law, the object's velocity is changed by the

net force arising from the objects interactions with the rest of the world:

F

=

a =

td

On the left hand side: the derivative means the rate of change of the velocity over time (change in motion)

On the right hand side : the net Force (the cause of the changing motion) is divided by the mass (a property of the object related to its inertia).

NOTICE: This equation says that a vector derivative of the velocity (not the velocity itself) has the same direction as the net force The velocity can

change because either its direction of motion or its speed, or both, change. A special case arises when the force causing the directional change is

perpendicular to the velocity, in which case the speed remains constant and only the direction changes. This gives rise to the special type of

motion called uniform circular motion.

Newton's second law is the operational definition of force: directly proportional to the acceleration and to the mass. This definition enables us to

quantify force, and thereby to study it. Thus we can discover Laws of Force like universal gravity and Hookes law for springs. Knowing the force

from these laws and the objects positions, we can make accurate predictions about the motion of most objects in the universe.

The equation F = ma is an example of the different uses of equalities in physics and mathematics. Mathematics equations are used as identities.

Newton's Second Law is a relation between two very different physical quantities:

acceleration). It is a Law of Nature, and therefore subject to experimental test to see whether it accurately describes how the world works. It would

be falsified if the same force, when applied to a mass twice as big, did not result in an acceleration exactly one half as large. Its vector nature

would be contradicted if two forces acting on a body simultaneously resulted in an acceleration different from what one would predict from the

vector addition of the accelerations that each force would cause if acting separately. It is accurately checked each time we observe Jupiter pass

behind the moon at the time we calculated in advance, or when we make a midcourse correction of a space probe so that it will enter Mars'

atmosphere at the correct angle to slow down without burning up.

is the resulting force from all interaction(s) with other objects. We call it "net" force to indicate the importance of

adding the vector forces from ALL the interactions. The "net force" is not "one of the forces" acting on the object. Rather, the net force can be

thought of as the single force that could be applied to the object to cause the same consequence as the effect of all the forces actually acting on the

object.

a

On the right hand side : m is the mass (an intrinsic property of the object), and

the object, describing how the motion is changing. The product of these two physical quantities always has the same (vector) value as the net force

is a force or interaction of any kind with the object. Repeat as often as necessary:

am
