The same type of engine is placed in two different airplanes. The first airplane is twice as heavy as the second airplane. Which statement is correct about the mass of the airplane and its acceleration, assuming a constant net force?

Increasing the acceleration of the airplane causes the engine to provide less force.

Decreasing the mass of the airplane will result in the airplane accelerating less.

Increasing the acceleration of the airplane causes the engine to provide more force.

Decreasing the mass of the airplane will result in the airplane accelerating more.

  4. Damon seems like they’d be correct. Idk why they’re being downvoted they said the correct answer “ decreasing the mass of the airplane will result in the airplane accelerating more” just in layman’s terms. Anyway if you’re in connexus taking the force and motion test they are correct
