  Force - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Force is a vector quantity defined as the rate of change of the momentum of the body that would be induced by that force acting alone.
The SI unit of force is the newton, while the English unit of force is the pound-force.
Conservative forces are equivalent to the gradient of a potential, and include gravity, electromagnetic force, and spring force.

 Force - MSN Encarta
Force is a vector, which means that it has both direction and magnitude.
The net force acting on an object, the object's mass, and the acceleration of the object are all related to each other by Newton's second law of motion, named after English physicist and mathematician Isaac Newton.
If multiple forces combine to give a net force that is zero, then the object will not accelerate; the object will either remain motionless or continue moving at a constant velocity.

 Force (Star Wars) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Some think of the Force as a sentient entity that may be capable of intelligent thought—almost as if it were a sort of god—while others simply consider it something that can be manipulated and used as though it were a tool.
Manifestations of the Force, which are mentally-based abilities and tapped through the practitioner's willpower, include telepathy, psychokinesis, prescience, enhanced physical and metaphysical perception as well as the abilities to bend the will of the weak-minded and improve one's own physical ability.
In Timothy Zahn's Thrawn Trilogy, Luke Skywalker sensed the existence of the maddened Force adept clone Joruus C'Baoth as a ripple in the Force.

 force - HighBeam Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Since mass is constant at ordinary velocities, the result of the force is a change in velocity, or an acceleration, which may be a change either in the speed or in the direction of the velocity.
For example, the downward force of gravity (see gravitation) on a person weighing 200 lb (91 km) when standing on the ground is balanced by an equivalent upward force exerted by the earth on the person's feet.
The strong nuclear force, or strong interaction, is associated with certain reactions between elementary particles and is responsible for holding the atomic nucleus together.

 Force   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Our present understanding is that there are four fundamental forces in the universe, the gravity force, the nuclear weak force, the electromagnetic force, and the nuclear strong force in ascending order of strength.
In mechanics, forces are seen as the causes of linear motion, whereas the causes of rotational motion are called torques.
Newton's Third Law states that all forces in nature occur in pairs of forces which are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction.

 Forces on an Airplane
A force may be thought of as a push or pull in a specific direction.
A force is a vector quantity so a force has both a magnitude and a direction.
Like lift, there are many factors that affect the magnitude of the drag force including the shape of the aircraft, the "stickiness" of the air, and the velocity of the aircraft.

 Balanced and Unbalanced Forces
The force of gravity exerts a downward force.
The force of gravity pulling downward and the force of the table pushing upwards on the book are of equal magnitude and opposite directions.
To determine if the forces acting upon an object is balanced or unbalanced, an analysis must first be conducted to determine what forces are acting upon the object and in what direction.

 The Meaning of Force   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Force is a quantity which is measured using the standard metric unit known as the
Because a force is a vector which has a direction, it is common to represent forces using diagrams in which a force is represented by an arrow.
The size of the arrow is reflective of the magnitude of the force and the direction of the arrow reveals the direction which the force is acting.

 Force
Frictional resistance to the relative motion of two solid objects is usually proportional to the force which presses the surfaces together as well as the roughness of the surfaces.
This force which will affect frictional resistance is the component of applied force which acts perpendicular or "normal" to the surfaces which are in contact and is typically referred to as the normal force.
In many common situations, the normal force is just the weight of the object which is sitting on some surface, but if an object is on an incline or has components of applied force perpendicular to the surface, then it is not equal to the weight.

 Force, Coercion and Capitalism - Why is the initiation of force banned under Capitalism?
By initiation of force I mean those who start the use of force to achieve their ends, i.e., a bank robber.
Only the initiation of force against a man can stop his mind, thus rendering it useless as a means of survival.
The use of force, in and of itself, is not evil -- but to initiate (start) force is. Contrary to the vile doctrines of the pacifists, force used in self-defense is a species of the good.

 The Force - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki
The Sith Lord Darth Bane considered the Force to be finite, and thus ideally restricted to the use of the Sith Lord.
The Potentium view of the Force, considered heresy by Old Republic Jedi, held that the Force and the Galaxy in general were given a master plan which was inherently good, and that there was no dark or light side to the Force.
The Force played a major part in the Jedi use of a lightsaber, in that their heightened awareness kept them from accidentally injuring themselves while using the weapon in combat, as the blade had no relative weight, making it difficult to judge its position.

 Howstuffworks "How Force, Power, Torque and Energy Work"
This is the amount of force that the Earth exerts on you.
The force you apply to the scale compresses a spring, which moves the needle.
That is, the more force you apply to an object, the greater the rate of acceleration; and the more mass the object has, the lower the rate of acceleration.

 Force   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Commonly experienced as a "push" or "pull," force is a vector quantity, having both magnitude and direction.
The study of forces in equilibrium is statics; that of forces and motion is dynamics.

 Force - Uncyclopedia
Actually, the first 9 forces, as well as all other observable forces, are combinations of the final 4: duct tape, garlic, centrifugal, and love forces.
For example, mixing love with garlic leads to the attractive force of good cooking; mixing duct tape with love leads to the bidirectional force of kinky sex; mixing duct tape with centrifugal force leads to unspeakable acts involving kittens.
That burning sensation is not, however, and is in fact caused by an acute case of herpes you picked up when you experienced high amounts of the love force without proper application of the latex force (a specialized form of the duct tape force).

 fUSION Anomaly. The Force
Force, the most general, usually implies the exertion of strength, especially physical power, or the operation of circumstances that permit no alternative to compliance: Tear gas forced the fugitives out of their hiding place.
Obligate applies when force is exerted by the terms of a legal contract or promise or by the dictates of one's conscience or sense of propriety: I am obligated to repay the loan.
Jedi Knights discovered that the Force was accessible to all living beings through the presence of midi-chlorians in their cells.
