## What is force in terms of acceleration?

Force is a physical influence that when applied to an object causes it to accelerate in the direction from which the force was applied. It is expressed in newtons and is a vector quantity. Force (N) = mass (kg) × acceleration (m/s²). Thus, an object of constant mass accelerates in proportion to the force applied.

**How is forces related to acceleration?**

The acceleration is directly proportional to the net force; the net force equals mass times acceleration; the acceleration in the same direction as the net force; an acceleration is produced by a net force. Consistent with the above equation, a unit of force is equal to a unit of mass times a unit of acceleration.

**What is force in physics class 9?**

Force: It is a push or pull on an object that produces acceleration in the body on which it acts. (a) It can change the speed of a body. (b) It can change the direction of motion of a body.

### Is force a function of acceleration?

Acceleration and velocity Newton’s second law says that when a constant force acts on a massive body, it causes it to accelerate, i.e., to change its velocity, at a constant rate. In the simplest case, a force applied to an object at rest causes it to accelerate in the direction of the force.

**How do you find acceleration with force and mass?**

According to Newton’s second law of motion, the acceleration of an object equals the net force acting on it divided by its mass, or a=Fm. This equation for acceleration can be used to calculate the acceleration of an object when its mass and the net force acting on it are known.

**How do forces occur answer?**

A force is a push or pull upon an object resulting from the object’s interaction with another object. Whenever there is an interaction between two objects, there is a force upon each of the objects. When the interaction ceases, the two objects no longer experience the force.

#### What is Newton force?

In plain English, 1 newton of force is the force required to accelerate an object with a mass of 1 kilogram 1 meter per second per second. A newton (N) is the international unit of measure for force.

**What is acceleration in physics class 9?**

Acceleration: It is a measure of the change in the velocity of an object per unit time. Acceleration can be caused either by change in direction of motion or change in speed or both.

**What force is directly responsible for making the car accelerate?**

friction

So, there are lots of other forces going on internal to the car. But the force directly responsible for making the car accelerate is the road’s friction.

## How do you find acceleration with force?

**How do you find force with mass and net force?**

The net force on an object is equal to the mass of the object multiplied by the acceleration of the object. Or some simply say: Force equals mass times acceleration.
