Force is a vector quantity that describes objects' interaction and ability to alter their motion or shape. An object can be accelerated or deformed by a force. Formally, force is defined as the product of an object's mass and acceleration and is expressed in Newtons (N).

What is force?
Force is depicted as a vector, implying it possesses both magnitude and direction. The direction of a force indicates the orientation in which it acts, and its magnitude indicates the extent of the applied force.
For example, to modify the motion of an object moving in a straight line, a force must be applied in the opposite direction of its motion.
Force unit conversions are crucial in various aspects of physics and engineering.

How to calculate force?
We employ Newton's second law to calculate force, which states that the force acting on an object is directly proportional to its acceleration and inversely proportional to its mass.
The formula for Newton's second law is as follows:
Given its acceleration and mass, this formula enables us to calculate the force that will act on an object.
