In terms of Physics, a force is an impel or pull upon an object resulting from the object’s contact with another object. When there is an interface between two objects, there will be a force upon each of the objects. Force only exists as a result of an interaction. Force is measured as Newton (N), the standard metric unit and 1 Newton is the amount of force required to give a 1 kg mass an acceleration of 1 m/s2. There are two types of force: applied and resistive. When one object comes in the contact of another and causes the second object to change its velocity or direction, it is an applied force, while a resistive force is one that opposes motion or change in motion, for example friction and inertia.

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 Where:
m - mass a - acceleration
