#### 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.
