Newtons Second Law.

As per my latest study I have found out that Newtons Second Law exists in a non inertial reference frame so this says F=ma so this goes against relativity which says inertial forces are independent of mass.

Think about it.

Does it? What do inertial forces depend on?

Misinterpretation.

It was my mistake in reading when PMB said that motion is independent of mass I misinterpreted it to mean that force is independent of mass.
