An influence (a "push or pull") that changes the motion of a moving object (e.g., slows it down, speeds it up, changes its direction) or produces motion in a stationary object. The strength of a force is calculated by multiplying the mass of the object by its acceleration. In the metric (or SI) system, force is measured in newtons.
