  force - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about force   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
The action of an unbalanced or resultant force results in the acceleration of a body in the direction of action of the force, or it may, if the body is unable to move freely, result in its deformation (see Hooke's law).
Force is a vector quantity, possessing both magnitude and direction; its SI unit is the newton.
A resultant force is a single force acting on a particle or body whose effect is equivalent to the combined effects of two or more separate forces.

 Newton
In physics, a compound SI unit, the newton (symbol: N) is the unit of force, named for Sir Isaac Newton in recognition of his work on classical mechanics.
It is defined as the amount of force required to accelerate a one kilogram mass at a rate of one meter per second per second.
It is also the unit of weight, as weight is the force acting between two objects due to gravity.

 Force   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
Force is not a fundamental quantity in physics, despite the tendency to introduce students to physics via this concept.
Force is rarely measured directly and is often confused with related concepts such as tension and stress.
While force is the name of the derivative of momentum with respect to time, the derivative of force with respect to time is sometimes called yank.

 Strelitz - LoveToKnow 1911
They were a fierce and illdisciplined force, individually brave and cruel in war, and almost ungovernable in peace.
Their mutinies were frequent and dangerous, and at last, in 1682, an unusually serious outbreak led Peter the Great to compass the abolition of the force.
Crushed in battle by Peter's general, Patrick Gordon, they ceased to exist as a military force, and about 2000 of them who fell into the hands of the tsar were barbarously tortured and put to death.

 Force information - Search.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
Force is a vector quantity defined as the rate of change of momentum induced in a free body by the force, and therefore has a direction associated.
Many forces exist: Coulomb's force (the force between electrical charges), gravitational (force between masses), magnetic force, frictional forces, centrifugal, impact force, and spring force, magnetism, tension, chemical bonding and contact force to name a few.
Only four fundamental forces of nature are known: the strong nuclear force, the electromagnetic force, the weak nuclear force, and the gravitation.

 Graviton Summary
In physics, the graviton is a hypothetical elementary particle that transmits the force of gravity in the framework of quantum field theory.
Gravitons are postulated because of the great success of the quantum field theory (in particular, the Standard Model) at modeling the behavior of all other forces of nature with similar particles: electromagnetism with the photon, the strong interaction with the gluons, and the weak interaction with the W and Z bosons.
The dominance of gravity at large scales is due to the fact that the nuclear forces have a limited range, and the electromagnetic force often largely cancels due to the existence of positive and negative charges.

 Torque Summary
The force applied to a lever, multiplied by its distance from the lever's fulcrum, is the torque.
For example, a force of three newtons applied two metres from the fulcrum exerts the same torque as one newton applied six metres from the fulcrum.

 Invasion   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
An invasion is a military action consisting of armed forces of one geopolitical entity entering territory controlled by another such entity, generally with the objective of conquering territory or altering the established government.
The term usually connotes a strategic endeavor of substantial magnitude; because the goals of an invasion are usually large-scale and long-term, large forces are needed to hold territory and protect the interests of the invading entity.

Torque has dimensions of force times distance and the SI units of torque are stated as "newton metres".

 Sequence Disambiguation
However, it is not clear from this study whether the demand for disambiguation of sequences per se, rather than other aspects of spatial processing, is critical.
In order to test whether sequence disambiguation is a fundamental feature of memory processing dependent on the hippocampus, we designed a sequence disambiguation task after Levy's (1996) formal model that involved two series of events that overlap in the middle items.

Due to a variety of forces, energy has many different forms (gravitational, electric, heat, etc.) that can be grouped into two major categories: kinetic energy and potential energy.
Atoms and molecules, the central concepts of chemistry, are made up of electrons and protons, and therefore coulombic forces are at work during the rearrangement of atoms (during formation or decomposition of molecules).
One can therefore assert that transformation of energy from a more to a less concentrated form is the driving force of all biological processes or chemical processes that are responsible for the life of a biological organism.

 What in the hell … :: … is up with theology? :: December :: 2005   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
In his short piece, “The Right To Use Force” (a commentary on another essay of the same name from a journal of religious socialism), Benjamin writes that “one of the tasks of my moral philosophy”; is an exposition of the position that only individuals possess the right to use force.
To say otherwise would imply a certain non-normative force, a position which is not a position (a political position analogous to the epistemological position of the god’s-eye-view or view from nowhere found metaphysical realism).
At the same time, though, by absolutizing a moral right to force that is not legitimately monopolizable, as it resides in all humans (at any point/time when force is exercised this faux divine right exists), Benjamin essentially renders the language of rights inert.

The force was initially to be called the North West Mounted Rifles, but that was rejected as too military in nature, Macdonald fearing that this could antagonize both the First Nations and the Americans.
The force was organized like a British cavalry regiment and still maintains some of the traditions of those units, like the well known Canadian Musical Ride, to this day.
To that end, the commanding officer of the force arranged to be sworn in as a justice of the peace, which allowed for magisterial authority in the Mounties' jurisdiction.

The Air Force intends to keep the B-52 in service until around 2050, an unprecedented length of service for a combat aircraft model (the venerable DC-3, now 70 years old, is still in regular revenue service in civilian hands).
During Operation Allied Force, B-52s opened the conflict with conventional cruise missile attacks and then transitioned to delivering general purpose bombs and cluster bomb units on Serbian army positions and staging areas.
However, B-29 Superfortress pilots, who were used to using brute force from the human body to actuate the control surfaces, would be transferred to the B-52, which had hydraulic controls.
