Introduction to Newton’s Second Law of Motion with Example Problem

By Flipping Physics, 11/21/2014
The application of Newton’s Second Law is when you really understand what the net force equals mass times acceleration where both force and acceleration are vectors really means. Therefore, we introduce Newton’s Second Law and then do an example problem.
