Newton's 2nd Law is "F = ma" which stands for Force = Mass x Acceleration. To determine how much force you are using is based on the mass of the object you are trying to move and how fast you are moving it, it is also called "Acceleration". In the comic strip, the girl kicked the soccer ball towards her brother which demonstrated Newton's 2nd law since she is kicking the ball which is using force and how fast the ball is going to its destination which is determined as acceleration. The mass of the ball helps determine how much force is applied as she is kicking it. Another example was the man pushing his car. Since the car has a greater value of mass than the man, it makes it harder for the man to push the car, which means he is applying more force. Force once again is determined based on how fast the car is being pushed. Brief, Newton's 2nd law is showing how force is applied as an object with a certain amount of mass is being moved and how fast it reaches its destination. Similar to saying, if the object has less mass, it won't need as much force. If the object has a lot of mass, it will need a greater force.

I'm so bored! There's nothing to do.. *ugh*
How many times do I have to tell you to not play indoor soccer?
Hey Sis! Can you kick the ball over?
If this happens one more time, I'm going to tell mom.
Did you know as you are kicking the ball towards me, you are using more force? Same as saying, if you are trying to move something from its original position, then you are using up more force depending on what you are trying to move.

As he is trying to push the car, he is using a lot of force since the car has a lot of mass. Force can be determined by how much mass the car has and how fast is he pushing it. Also known as "m/sec^2".
