Unformatted text preview: Netwon’s 2nd Law: The acceleration of a body is directly proportional to the net force acting on it, and inversely proportional to its mass. F net = ma The direction of the acceleration is in the direction of the applied ne force the direction of the applied net force . Force: Force is a vector Force is a vector. Forces are measured in units of Newton (N). 1 N is the force required to accelerate a mass of 1 kg with 1 m/s 2 . 1 N = 1 kg m/s 2...
