### Definitions:

Force:

Force is an interaction between two objects which causes a change in object motion. Typically, it causes an object with mass to accelerate or decelerate. Force can also be described as a pull or push. It is a vector quantity with a direction and magnitude.

Force is directly proportional to both mass and acceleration.

Force is categorized into two types, contact and Action At A Distance. Contact forces require the two object to be in direct contact. Action At A Distance forces do not require contact and are exerted over a distance. Types of force include air resistance, applied, centripetal, elastic, electrical, electromagnetic, friction, gravitational, magnetic, nuclear, normal, pressure, spring and tension.

The SI unit of force is the Newton.

Mass:

Mass is the amount or quantity of matter in an object. The more mass an object has the more resistant it is to a change in velocity(acceleration) from a force.

The kilogram is the SI unit of mass.

Acceleration:

Acceleration is a change in velocity. If an object is speeding up or slowing down it is accelerating. Acceleration can have a negative value.
