Derive relation F = ma from Newton 2nd Law of Motion

Let us derive the relation of force F = ma from Newton’s second law:

According to the Newton’s 2nd Law of motion, the rate of change of linear momentum of a body is directly proportional to the applied external force and in the direction of force.

It means that the linear momentum will change faster when a bigger force is applied.

Consider a body of mass ‘m’ moving with velocity v.

The linear momentum of a body is given by: Continue reading “Derive relation F = ma from Newton 2nd Law of Motion”
