• Forces are all around us, acting on everything we move or touch. In this page we learn about how forces affect the acceleration of objects. The more force you exert on an object, the greater the acceleration of that object(if you have the same mass). To achieve correct results you must exert a constant and controlled force on the object. (^_^)

  • Acceleration is also affected by the mass of the object, where the graph below shows that the greater the mass, the smaller the acceleration gets. (~_~)

  • To find the mass (or acceleration) of the object, you can use the formula, a=1/m. (Inversely proportional;force does not apply) (a=1/1;a=1/2)

  • After looking at both of these things we know that the equation, a=F/m, makes sense. "A" stands for the acceleration, "F" stands for the net forces on enacted on the object, and "m" stands for the Mass of the object.
