Mass and acceleration

Posted by Mr Mallon on September 22, 2013

Here is a movie showing how an increase in mass of an object can affect the object`s acceleration.


From the above famous equation you can see that an increase in the mass, m, will reduce the acceleration provided the unbalanced force remains the same.

This is why your car will have a smaller acceleration when it is full of passengers than it would have when empty.
