Why do some mutations not affect the phenotype

Newton's First Law
Every object continues in its state of rest or movement unless a force acts upon it.
Newton's Second Law
The acceleration if an object is proportionate to the net force acting on the object. The greater the mass the greater the force for the acceleration.
Acceleration= net force/mass
Newton's Third Law
Whenever one object exerts a force on a second object, the second object exerts an equal and opposite reaction on the first.
