The Second Law of Motion states that the acceleration of an object increases as the amount of net force applied from the outside the object increases. Greater masses require greater forces to accelerate them. Also represented by the formula:
Force= Mass x Acceleration
Here are some examples:
It takes more force to throw a bowling ball than a softball.
In football, usually the largest team members play the front line both offensively and defensively.
The smaller, compact car gets better gas mileage than the large, heavy vehicle.
