Hey dad, why is it when I roll an orange and a volleyball with the same force, the orange rolls further?
Ah, that is because of Newton's 2nd Law.
Newton's second law basically states that if you use the same force on two different masses, the object of the smaller mass will accelerate further, and the more force you use, the more acceleration it has.
I think I get it, can you give me an example though?
Of course! For example, I put the volleyball and orange on the same starting point. If I push them both with the same amount of force....
Oh I get it! Thanks dad.
The orange travels further because it's lighter than the volleyball.
