If a net force acts on an object, from Newton's second law, it experiences an acceleration in the direction of the net force.


The Newton's second law gives,

#vecF = Mveca# where, #vecF# is the force and #veca# is the acceleration.

Acceleration alters the velocity of an object. It might alter the speed or the direction of motion or both depending on the physical conditions.
