Definition of Force

Definition of Force   A force is a push or pull upon an object resulting from the object's interaction with another object. Whenever there is an interaction between two objects, there is a force upon each of the objects. When the interaction ceases, the two objects no longer experience the force. Forces onlyexist as a result of an interaction.   Velocity, Acceleration, Momentum, and Impulse   Velocity, in physics, is a vector quantity (it has both magnitude and direction), and is the time rate of...

Four Forces of Flight

there is a constant relationship between these forces. Lift is the upward force created by the effect of airflow as it passes over and under the wing. The airplane is supported in flight by lift. Weight, which opposes lift, is caused by the downward pull of gravity. Thrust is the forward force which propels the airplane through the air, which varies with the amount of engine power being used. Opposing thrust is drag, which is a backward, or retarding, force which limits the speed of the airplane. I’m...

Forces Context Rich Problems

SPH4U: Forces – Context Rich Problems I do not have answers to these problems, and I haven’t thought about how to solve them. They are all fairly challenging and fair game for a test question. Work with friends on them, explain your solutions and convince yourselves that you understand the problems. I can’t tell you if you are right - I just don’t know! 1. Tension, Weight, Friction: You are taking advantage of an early snow to go sledding. After a long afternoon of going up and down hills with...

Use of force

officers have is their power to decide when to use force or when to use lethal force. Manning (1997) argues that it is generally accepted that police should be allowed to use force. He also explains that there are an uncertain amount people who agree on as to what constitutes excessive force. The line between what is necessary and what is extreme is very thin and hard to see. Use of force is no doubt one of the most important aspects in policing and force should also be used with great discretion. The...

Intermolecular Forces

Intermolecular forces exist between independent particles, such as atoms, ions, or molecules. They can be forces of either attraction or repulsion. The amount of charge, how it is distributed, and the length of time that a charge distribution exists can affect the strength of intermolecular forces. And despite having variable force strengths, all intermolecular forces are considered weak compared to chemical bonds, or intramolecular forces. Chemical bonds are not only stronger; they are also more...

Math: Three Dimensional Force System

DIMENSIONAL FORCE SYSTEM The first step in solving three-dimensional equilibrium problems, as in the case of two dimensions, is to draw a free-body diagram of the body (or group of bodies considered as a system).. The reactive forces and couple moments acting at various types of supports and connections, when the members are viewed in three dimensions, are listed in Table 5–2. It is important to recognize the symbols used to represent each of these supports and to understand clearly how the forces and...

Experiment 4 Addition of Forces and Vectors

APPARATUS: Cenco force table with pulleys. Metal ring, strings, weight hangers and weights. Rulers and protractors. The force table provides a means for applying known forces at one or more points and in various directions in the horizontal place. The forces are the tensions in strings which pass over pulleys attaches to the rim of the circular table and from which weights are hung. PRINCIPLES AND EQUATIONS: If several forces act on a body, the...
