Answer:

Newton's second law states that, the rate of change of momentum of a body is proportional to the applied force and the change takes place in the direction of applied force.

Explanation:

A simple mathematical way of writing all that is,

#vecF prop (dvecp)/dt#
#implies vecF = k(dvecp)/dt#

Where #k# is the proportionality constant.

In SI units #k = 1#.
