The second law of motion

Newton's Second Law of Motion concerns the mass of objects and their acceleration. What the law states is "the change of momentum of a body is proportional to the impulse impressed on the body and happens along the straight line on which that impulse is impressed." Now in regular English what that means is a force applied to an object will accelerate it in a straight line and the equation for that is F=ma or Force = Mass times Acceleration.

And with that equation we can derive two additional points. One is more force accelerates the same mass faster and more mass requires more force for the same acceleration. So, if something is bigger it's going to require more force to move it. Or if you use more force on something, you are going to accelerate it a little bit faster. So, let's take a look at this. Here we have a simple ball and the red arrow indicates a force.

So, as the force is applied to the object, the object will accelerate, which means it will move a further d...
