# Newtons second law of motion

See the below image for the Newtons second law of motion diagram. The other name for Newton’s second law is a law of force and acceleration. What are some daily life examples of Newton’s second law of motion? Newton’s second law of motion explains how force can change the acceleration of the object and how acceleration and mass of the same object are related.

Issac Newton’s Laws of Motion can be defined as: An object at rest stays at rest, and an object in motion will stay in motion, at a constant speed in a straight line, unless another force acts upon it. The acceleration of an object depends on the mass of the object and the amount of force applied.

The second law of motion is more quantitative and is used extensively to calculate what happens in situations involving a force. Newton’s second law states that the acceleration of an object depends upon two variables – the net force acting on the object and the mass of the object.
