# How do the accelerations of two interacting bodies differ if the mass of the first body is 3 times

How do the accelerations of two interacting bodies differ if the mass of the first body is 3 times less than the second body?

According to Newton’s third law:

F2 → 1 = -F1 → 2, where F2 → 1 and F1 → 2 are the forces of interacting bodies, F1 = m1 * a1 (m1 is the mass of the first body, a1 is the acceleration of the first body), F2 = m2 * a2 (m2 is the mass the second body, a2 is the acceleration of the second body).

By the condition of the problem: 3m1 = m2.

m1 * a1 = m2 * a2.

m1 * a1 = 3m1 * a2.

a1 / a2 = 3m1 / m1 = 3 times.

Answer: The accelerations of two interacting bodies differ 3 times.
