## princeevee one year ago Newton's Second Law of Motion is expressed as F = ma. A lawn mower with constant mass is pushed over a length of grass. How much force is required to triple the acceleration rate? A. The force required is one-third the original force. B. The force required is three times the original force. C. The force required remains constant. D. The force required is four times the original.

From F=ma you can get a=F/m so if you want 3 times a : $3a=\frac{3F}{m}$ you need to triple the force!

yes!

F=ma a=F/m 3a = 3F/m Triple force is required to triple the acceleration
