What is Newton’s Second Law of Motion in Physics

Newton’s Second Law of Motion


The acceleration of a body, “a” is directly proportional to the net force acting upon it F, and inversely proportional to its Mass “m”.




According To The Newton‘s Second law of motion when a force acts on an object it produces an acceleration which is directly proportion to the amount of the force,


So, F = ma




F = force [N]

M= mass [kg]

A = acceleration caused by F [mS-2]


  1. Force


Changes the size, shape, state of rest, velocity and/or direction of an object

Force is a vector quantity.


  1. Mass


The quantity of matter contained in a body is called mass.



F = ma

m = F/a




The unit of mass in M.K.S system is Kilogram (kg)


Note: In the process of training students undergo introductory, industrial and pre-diploma practice in agricultural holdings, agricultural enterprises, government institutions, banking structures, industrial enterprises, as well as in training firms. The full-time students have the opportunity to study in parallel in 2 directions at the Kazan State University, or to master the working professions in addition, to participate in foreign internships under international programs. Only full-time education gives students an idea of ​​the real eventful student life. Extra-curricular work with students opens up huge opportunities for young people to realize their creative potential (classes in a scientific student society, participation in student self-government – work in the student council, newspaper publication, theater, competitions, holidays and much more).
