# Force Converter

Force can be defined as interaction that will change the motion of an object. To put it differently, the object's velocity (different from speed as velocity has a vector, i.e. direction) can be altered, involving the beginning of the motion and acceleration. Physicists would also add that the rates of change of velocity can be changed as well to be more accurate due to deceleration and acceleration of the object.

The Newton is unit which is accepted internationally to calculate force is named after the great scientist, Sir Isaac Newton who discovered the Three Laws of Motion, including the gravitation. One Newton represents the force that is required to accelerate a mass of 1 kg at the acceleration rate of 1 meter per second squared.

The Newtons can be converted to various units by the online Force Converter. There is even such unit as dyne which is the force that is needed to cause an acceleration rate of 1 centimeter per second squared of an object whose mass is equal to 1 gram.
