Force Unit Definition:
Force - a physical quantity that describes the physical interaction between bodies. The SI unit for force is the Newton (N). The force is equal to one N if it accelerates a mass of one kilogram to 1 meter per second squared.
F = m * a
m - mass
a - acceleration
The concept of force first mathematically, presented by Newton in its second law of gravity, had puzzled many thinkers and philosophers, like Archimedes and Aristotle. It was believed by thinkers that a force is required to maintain motion, even at a constant velocity. It was a fundamental error, as the concept of friction had not developed by then.
Newton classical mechanics says the net force acting upon an object is equal to the rate at which its momentum changes with time, that is F=ma, where F is force, m is mass, and “a” is acceleration.
Force, a vector quantity, which is having magnitude as well as direction, is measured in newtons; represented by F.
Like other units, newtons also have number of variations based on the need of calculations, such as exanewton, petanewton, teranewton, including many others. Our site has accumulated all those units at one place in the form of table for Force unit conversions.
