18. 18. If mass remains constant, doubling the acceleration, doubles the force. If force remainsconstant, doubling the mass, halves the acceleration.
19. 19. Newton’s 2ndLaw proves that different massesaccelerate to the earth at the same rate, but withdifferent forces.• We know that objectswith different massesaccelerate to theground at the samerate.• However, because ofthe 2ndLaw we knowthat they don’t hit theground with the sameforce.F = maF = ma98 N = 10 kg x 9.8 m/s/s98 N = 10 kg x 9.8 m/s/sF = maF = ma9.8 N = 1 kg x 9.89.8 N = 1 kg x 9.8m/s/sm/s/s
