Force is a push or a pull which is excreted on anybody or we can say that it is the interaction which when unopposed makes the body changes its state, the rest in the body will start moving and the body which is moving can be stopped.

in order to understand the concept of force let’s take up an example, suppose we have an object A with us which is at rest, we applied a push on the object and the object moved, this is the situation we can say that we have applied force on the object, another way suppose we have an object which is a motion and then we applied a force on the object or we gave a push on the opposite direction and the object stops than also we can say that the force was applied on the object moving object and the object came into rest.

## Force Value Converter

Here when the body accelerates then we can say that we have applied positive force value to the object and if the body retards then we can say that the object has experienced a negative force.

Force is a vector quantity this means that the amount of change that will come in the original state of the object depends on the magnitude of the force applied and the direction in which the force is applied, symbol F is used to denote the force.

The concept of force comes from Newton’s second law of motion, it states that net force which is acting on the body is always equal to the rate at which the momentum of the body is changing with respect to time, where the mass of the body remains same. Or in simple words, we can say that the amount of acceleration the body will gain is directly proportional to the net force which is acting on the body.

**Units and dimensions **

The SI unit of the force is Newton and in addition to this dyne, pound-force, kip is also used to represent force value. The basic derived unit of force is **KG-M/S*S**

1 newton is the force which is required to accelerate the body to 1 unit which has a mass of 1 kilogram, when we talk about the CGS system then we have done. It is the force which is required to accelerate a body to 1 centimeter square which is of 1 gram.

For conversion purpose, a newton is equal to 100, 000 dynes.

**Calculation of force value **

- The force value can be measured using the equation for Newton second law which says
**F=MA,**where F is the force, M is the mass of the body on which the force is applied and A is the acceleration to which the body is accelerated. - You can use basic mechanical equation as
**v=u+at**in this equation we have V as velocity, u as initial velocity and tas time. -
**2as=V*V- U*U,**in this equation, we have an as acceleration, s as distance with V and u as initial and final velocity.
