FORCE

HideShow resource information
Define the Newton
force that gives a mass of 1kg an acceleration of 1ms^-2
1 of 5
What is the special theory of relativity?
velocity of an object will not change unless a net force acts on it // the mass of an object is affected by its velocity, only noticeable at very high velocities
2 of 5
Why can the equation F=ma not be used for particles travelling at very high speeds?
as its mass will increase
3 of 5
How is acceleration and force related?
directly proportional to each other - acceleration is always in the direction of the resultant force
4 of 5
What is net force?
product of mass x acceleration
