Force can be calculated from Newton’s second law of motion which gives that force is the product of mass and acceleration.
- Newton’s second law states that the rate of change of momentum of a body is directly proportional to the force applied, and this change in momentum takes place in the direction of the applied force.
- Newton’s first law gives the law of inertia and the third law the action & reaction law.
- The Law of conservation of momentum states that initial momentum is equal to final momentum.
- F= ma
