quantitykind:Force

Type
Description

"Force" is an influence that causes mass to accelerate. It may be experienced as a lift, a push, or a pull. Force is defined by Newton's Second Law as $$F = m \times a$$, where $$F$$ is force, $$m$$ is mass and $$a$$ is acceleration. Net force is mathematically equal to the time rate of change of the momentum of the body on which it acts. Since momentum is a vector quantity (has both a magnitude and direction), force also is a vector quantity.

Properties
$$L \cdot M/T^2$$
$$kg \cdot m/s^2$$
$$F = \frac{dp}{dt}$$, where $$F$$ is the resultant force acting on a body, $$p$$ is momentum of a body, and $$t$$ is time.
