Force

Formula

Fโƒ—=mร—aโƒ—orForce=Massร—Acceleration\vec{F} = m \times \vec{a} \;\;\;\; \text{or} \;\;\;\; \text{Force} = \text{Mass} \times \text{Acceleration}

Derivation

Mass=kg(Kilogram)Acceleration=msโˆ’2โˆดmร—a=kgms2\text{Mass}=kg\,(\text{Kilogram})\newline \text{Acceleration}=ms^{-2}\,\newline \therefore m \times a = kg \frac{m}{s^2}
