## What happens to acceleration if net force is tripled?

Whatever alteration is made of the net force, the same change will occur with the acceleration. Double, triple or quadruple the net force, and the acceleration will do the same. On the other hand, whatever alteration is made of the mass, the opposite or inverse change will occur with the acceleration.

**What happens to acceleration if force is doubled?**

As we increase the force on an object the acceleration increases proportionally. Since the mass does not change as the acceleration increases, we can say that force is equal to acceleration. Therefore, if you double the force you double the acceleration. Therefore, mass is inversely proportional to acceleration.

### What would the acceleration of the object be if the mass was tripled while keeping the force the same?

Acceleration a = F(net)/m, therefore, for a constant F(net) if m is tripled then the acceleration must decrease by a factor of 3. R25. If both F(net) and m are tripled then a remains unchanged.

**What happens to an object’s momentum if its mass is tripled but its velocity remains constant?**

If you increase either mass or velocity, the momentum of the object increases proportionally. If you double the mass or velocity you double the momentum.

## When you triple the mass What is the acceleration?

If you triple the mass, the acceleration is three times smaller. an object is directly proportional to the magnitude of the net force, and inversely proportional to the mass of the object.

**When you triple the mass the acceleration will be?**

### What will happen to momentum if the mass triples?

Mass and velocity are both directly proportional to the momentum. If you increase either mass or velocity, the momentum of the object increases proportionally. If you double the mass or velocity you double the momentum.

**What is the relationship between net force and acceleration?**

Newton’s second law states that the acceleration produced by a net force on an object is directly proportional to the magnitude of the net force, is in the same direction as the net force, and is inversely proportional to the mass of the object.

## What happens if you triple the force acting on a mass?

The equation F = ma readily tells you that force is directly proportional to acceleration or vice versa. So if you triple the force acting on a mass it will also accelerate three times as much. How do you earn money by sharing your university notes?

**How do you increase the acceleration of an object?**

To increase the acceleration of an object, you must increase the net force acting on it. Double the force on an object and its acceleration doubles. If you triple the force, its acceleration triples. We say an object’s acceleration is directly proportional to the net force acting on it.

### Is the force we apply the only force acting on object?

Most often, the force we apply is not the only force acting on an object. For example, after the boy kicks the football in Figure 6.1, both gravity and air resistance act on the football. Recall from the previous chapter that the combination of forces acting on an object is the net force. Acceleration depends on the net force.
