will accelerate.

Ok,
Rocket Scientists. Take the Newton's Laws of Motion Challenge.
Can you guess which of Newton’s Three Laws of Motion
applies?

Select
the law that you think best fits the statement in the
yellow box above.

“The acceleration of an object
is directly proportional to the net force and inversely
proportional to its mass.” This can be expressed
in equation form:
