The net force is equal to mass times acceleration is the statement from the given list of statements that describes Newton's second law, therefore the correct answer is option D.

### What is Newton's second law?

Newton's Second Law states that The resultant force acting on an object is proportional to the rate of change of momentum.

The net force on a body = mass of object × acceleration of the object

The first option "Objects remain in the same state of motion unless a force acts on them" is an implication of the first law of motion .

The second option "For every action force there is an equal and opposite reaction force" is an implication of the third law of motion.

The last option from the given list "Net force is equal to mass times acceleration" is an implication of the second law of motion.
