3F - Newton's 2nd Law

Concepts
  • Mass (in terms of 2nd Law) 
  • Acceleration 
  • Force 
  • Newton 
  • Force Equation

Review / Summary 
    Use complete sentences unless otherwise directed.
  • Using the terms: force, mass, and acceleration, explain how Newton's 2nd Law can be seen when a person rides a bicycle.
    • Explain where the force is applied, how the mass is affected by the force, and how to make the person accelerate.
  • Could you make the acceleration less (for the person riding the bike), while keeping the force the same? If so, explain how.  If not, explain why not.
