1. A force is a push or pull.

1.1. New node

2. The SI unit of force is newton(N)

3. Forces can be measured with a force-meter.

4. Effects of forces:

4.2. A force can start a stationary objector stop a moving object.

4.3. A force can speed up or slow down a moving object.

4.4. A force can change the direction of a moving object

5. Kinds of forces

5.1. Gravitational Force(Gravity)

5.1.1. The force of gravity is a force that pulls objects towards the Earth

5.2. Magnetic Force

5.2.1. Magnetic force is the force of attraction produced by magnets on objects made of iron, steel, nickel and cobalt

5.3. Frictional Force

5.3.1. Frictional Force is a force produced by 2 moving surfaces in contact. It opposes and slows down movement of objects.

6. Pressure

6.1. Pressure is the force exerted per unit area.

6.2. Pressure increases when force increases or area decreases.
