All the forces acting on an object added together are caled the resultant force. IF the forces cancel eachother out then the resultant force is 0.

If the resultant force is not 0 then the object will accelerate in the direction of the resultant force. The greater the resultant force the greater the acceleration.

If the force is doubled, the acceleration will also be doubled.

The acceleration of an object when a resultant force is acting on it depends on the size of the force and the mass of the object.

If the force is applied to two objects of different mass the one with the smaller mass will have the larger acceleration.

To get two objects of different mass to accelerate at
