Force is defined as an influence that causes an object to undergo a change in speed, direction or shape. A force refers to pushing or pulling of an object with mass to acceleration. In science, force is described as a quantitative description of the interaction between two physical bodies. Force is the derivative of momentum with respect to time. Gravitation and electromagnetic force are those forces which can exert themselves even across the empty vacuum of space. Force is denoted by the symbol 'F'.
Force consists of both magnitude and direction that makes it a vector quantity. As per Newton's second law, the net force acting upon an object is equal to the rate at which its momentum changes. This advanced online Force Calculator is used to calculate and find the force when mass and acceleration of the object is known.
Example:
Calculate force for the given details of an object.
Mass (m) = 15 kg
Acceleration (a) = 10 m/s^{2}
Solution:
Apply Formula:
F = m*a
F = 15*10
F = 150 N
Force (F) = 150 N
