Force is equal to mass times acceleration. It’s an equation that has been drilled down to us by our science teachers during our school days. But, what does it mean?
It’s a concise statement of Newton’s Second Law of Motion. It states that the net force acting upon an object is equal to the rate at which its momentum changes with time.
Let’s break it down:
Force - any interaction that will change the motion of an object.
Mass - the amount of matter in an object
Acceleration - the increase in velocity or speed of an object
With the Force equation, you’ll know how much force you need to apply on an object to make it move. If you know your object’s mass and how much speed you want it to move, you can solve how much force needs to be applied.
What’s interesting is that as long as you have the two factors, you can solve for the one missing. For example, instead of mass, you know the force applied and the speed. You can use mathematics to know how much the object weighed.
Isaac Newton wrote the Three Laws of Motion in 1687 in his book titled “Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica (Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy).” It has been more than 300 years since and we’re still applying these laws today.
