## How do you find acceleration with two masses?

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.

**What is the acceleration of an object with twice the mass?**

Answer: The same force on twice the mass produces half the acceleration, or 1 m/s2.

**How do you find the acceleration of a system?**

Newton’s second law of motion states that the acceleration of a system is directly proportional to and in the same direction as the net external force acting on the system, and inversely proportional to its mass. In equation form, Newton’s second law of motion is a=Fnetm a = F net m .

### How is mass related to acceleration?

The acceleration of an object depends directly upon the net force acting upon the object, and inversely upon the mass of the object. As the force acting upon an object is increased, the acceleration of the object is increased. As the mass of an object is increased, the acceleration of the object is decreased.

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

The friction between the object and the surface on which it is placed is 0.25; it is also called as the coefficient of friction. Solution: We know the formula for acceleration with force and mass, which is a=F/m.

**How is acceleration related to mass?**

## What is the relationship of acceleration to force and mass?

Force is mass times acceleration, or F= m x a. This means an object with a larger mass needs a stronger force to be moved along at the same acceleration as an object with a small mass.

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

mass x acceleration = tension – weight If the acceleration is a= m/s2 then a net force= Newtons is required to accelerate the mass. This requires a tension of T= Newtons.

**How do you find the acceleration of a hanging mass?**

Acceleration = m/s² T= Newtons compared to the weight W = Newtons for the hanging mass. If the weight of the hanging mass is less than the frictional resistance force acting on the mass on the table, then the acceleration will be zero.

### What is mass and acceleration?

Mass is the amount of matter in an object and is expressed in kilograms. Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity of an object in the same straight line of the unbalanced force. When forces become balanced, there is no net force and therefore no movement.

**How would you relate mass and acceleration answer?**

Newton’s second law is often stated as F = ma, which means the force (F) acting on an object is equal to the mass (m) of object times its acceleration (a). This means the more mass an object has, the more force you need to accelerate it, and the greater the force, the greater the object’s acceleration.

**What is the relationship between mass and acceleration?**

One of the definitions of mass is the resistance of a body to motion in general and acceleration in particular due to the application of force. The more massive a body is, the less it accelerates due to the application of force.

## Can two objects with the same mass have different accelerations?

It seems you are implicitly assuming that the net forces on the two objects are the same in order to say that the accelerations could be different. This isn’t the case (unless they happen to have the same mass). In fact, their accelerations must be the same for the reason stated above. Share Cite Improve this answer Follow

**When do we use the acceleration formula with mass and force?**

We use the acceleration formula with mass and force when we do not have any knowledge of the velocity of the moving body and time. In this case, we only have information about According to Newton’s second law of motion, force is mass times acceleration we can use this relation to find the acceleration of the moving object.

**What makes the mass and the cart accelerate in the same way?**

$\\begingroup$ The only thing that makes both the cart and the mass accelerate in the same magnitude is the existance of the geometrical constraint, that is the massless string has no change in length. If such a constraint doesnot exist, this may not be the case.
