Summary:

• The Law of Acceleration explains the link between forces and motion; it is also known as Newton’s Second Law of Motion.
• The first part of the Law of Acceleration says that objects always change their velocity in the direction of the unbalanced force.
• With multiple forces we need to add up the forces to find the net force (or total force).
• The acceleration only depends on the net force, not on each individual force.
