What is force?: Forces are things that make something else move, from contact or not, it is the push or pull of an object that makes it speed up, slow down or stay the same. The force acting upon something is measured in Newtons, which is 'the force required to accelerate an object with a mass of 1 kilogram 1 meter per second, per second. Another term when using force is the 'Net force' of an object, which is simply the combination of all the forces that act upon that object. But if there is a balanced force, like 10 Newtons pulling an object right and 10 Newtons pulling an object left, then the Net force is 0 because they cancel each other out. Newton is named after Sir Isaac Newton who created the three Laws of Motion, which are the following; 'A body in motion is likely to stay in motion, whereas a body that is at rest will stay at rest. An example of this would be someone who is sitting on the floor watching television. They will continue to do this unless a motion is put into play to change it. Whereas a kid playing outside is moving around and will continue unless something happens to stop it', 'If a force acts upon a body, it will change the body’s direction or speed. An example of this would be to run up to a soccer ball and kick it. Your foot changed both the direction and speed of the ball.' and 'For every force and action, there is an equal reaction. The same example of the soccer ball can be used. A small kick won’t move it very much but a big kick will send it to the other side of the field.'.
