# how is acceleration of the cart related to the amount of force acting on it? the strips of it?

We know that Newton's Second Law of Motion states that -

$F = ma$

It is clear that acceleration is directly proportional to the Force acting on a body. So, the amount of Force acting on a body is directly proportional to the acceleration, when the mass is constant.

Force on the cart is directly proportional to the acceleration.

This relationship was given be Sir Isaac Newton.

Mathematically ;

F = ma

Where F is force, a is acceleration and m is constant of proportionality , also known as mass.
