Question #122299

Prove that Newton's second law is dimensionally correct

Expert's answer

**Answer: **Newton's second law is formulated as follows: the acceleration that a body acquires as a result of a force is directly proportional to that force and inversely proportional to the mass of the body.

"\\overrightarrow{a}=\\dfrac{\\overrightarrow{F}}{m};"

1N is equal to the force which, acting on a body of mass 1kg, gives it an acceleration of 1m / s^{2}.

"[a]=\\dfrac{1N}{1kg}=\\dfrac{1kg\\sdot1m\/s^2}{1kg}=1m\/s^2."
