Force is a push or pull that causes an object to accelerate or change its direction of motion. It is measured in Newtons (N).
Acceleration is the rate of change of an object's velocity. It can be calculated by dividing the change in velocity by the change in time. It is measured in meters per second squared (m/s^2).
According to Newton's Second Law of Motion, force is directly proportional to acceleration. This means that the greater the force applied to an object, the greater its acceleration will be. This also means that the smaller the force applied, the smaller the acceleration will be.
Mass is the amount of matter in an object, while weight is the force of gravity acting on an object's mass. Mass is measured in kilograms (kg), while weight is measured in Newtons (N).
Some examples of forces and acceleration in everyday life include pushing a shopping cart (force applied to accelerate the cart), throwing a ball (force applied to accelerate the ball), and riding a rollercoaster (changes in acceleration as the coaster moves along the track).
