Newton’s Second Law

The rate of change of linear momentum of a body is directly proportional to the external force applied on the body and this change takes place always in the direction of the applied force.
 
If a body of mass m, moves with velocity , then its linear momentum can be given by 34243.png and if force 34237.png is applied on a body, then

or 34224.png (K = 1 in CGS and SI units)

(as 34212.png acceleration produced in the body)
