Q:

Wht is Newton's second law of motion?

A:

Newton's second law of motion states that the force acting on an object will be equal to its mass times its aceleration. 

 

This means, the more mass something has, the more force you need to apply to give it any acceleration. It also means that if an object is moving at a constant velocity, it will have zero acceleration, which means no force is acting on it: proving the first law
