Storyboard Text

  • According to Newton's Second Law of Motion, Force = Mass x Acceleration. This means that the force that is applied to an object HAS TO BE EQUAL  to the mass of the object multiplied by the acceleration of the object.
  • If you had the option to either kick a soccer ball or kick a bowling ball, which would you pick to go faster? I would pick the soccer ball if I were you, the reason behind this obvious decision lies within Newton's Second Law of Motion.
  • Soccer Ball
  • Bowling Ball
  • F = M x A
  • Mass: The mass of the bowling ball is quite obviously larger than that of the soccer ball.
  • Bowling Ball
  • Acceleration: Since the mass of the bowling ball is larger than that of the soccer ball, the acceleration would need to be less in order to multiply to get the same force.
  • If both the soccer ball and bowling ball are kicked at the same force, the mass and acceleration are manipulated to solve for force.
  • In conclusion: The bowling ball would go at a much slower speed when kicked at the same force due to Newton's Second Law of Motion.
