In physics, a force is any interaction that, when unopposed, will change the motion of an object.

In other words, a force can cause an object with mass to change its velocity (which includes to begin moving from a state of rest), i.e., to accelerate. Force can also be described by intuitive concepts such as a push or a pull. A force has both magnitude and direction, making it a vector quantity.

It is measured in the SI unit of newtons and represented by the symbol F.
