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. Acceleration is a change in velocity. 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.
