Summary:

• Acceleration is not the same as speed.
• Greater the force, the greater the acceleration.
• For a given force, the smaller the mass of the object, the greater the acceleration.
• If the net force is larger (or smaller) than the object’s weight then the acceleration is greater (or less) than falling.
• For constant forces the acceleration is constant and the spacings follows the Odd Rule.
• If the forces are not constant then there is texture in the timing and spacing.
