30 Days of Words - Force

Today's word is force and I could have taken this in a million directions but I had fun yesterday with Archimedes so while yesterday's other word was eureka, today's other word is ouch.  Sir Isaac Newton probably said it after an apple dropped on his head causing him to reflect on gravity.  Newton figured out how to relate motion and acceleration with force and came up with a series of laws.  They pretty much explain how the mechanical universe operates.

Here they are with some practical applications.
