Force is any influence which changes the velocity of a body. The second law of motion is the key to understanding force represented by: (mass) (acceleration) or F=ma.

History of Force
Sir Isaac Newton developed the laws of motion on his family's farm after graduating early in 1665 due to a plague. With the first law of motion based from Galileo and theother two soon to follow, Newton revolutionized force on Earth and space.

Application of Force
Force is used in many ways rather it meaning a source of measurement, gravity, and space. If these laws were jeopardized our explains of velocity, acceleration, gravity, wouldprevent us from knowing how things happen on Earth as well space. Our thoughts about space exploration and the universe are influenced by the laws of gravity and motion together. Mass is directly proportional to acceleration thus making force associated with gravity.
