Chapter 3 Forces Part 2 - Newton's Second Law
• recall and apply the relationship resultant force = mass x acceleration to new situations or to solve related problems

Newton's second law of motion pertains to the behavior of objects for which all existing forces are not balanced. The second law states that the acceleration of an object is dependent upon two variables - the net force acting upon the object and the mass of the object

A 4.0 kg box A is stacked on top of a 2.0 kg box B. A force of 12.0 N is applied on box B. Assume that the surface that the boxes moved on is frictionless and that boxes A and B are glued together. What will happen to the motion of boxes? *
