# 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 a unit of force named after the great scientist Sir Isaac Newton, who discovered the Three Laws of Motion, including the law of 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.

This online Force Converter allows you to convert Newtons to various units, for example, into a unit such as dyne which represents the force needed to cause an acceleration rate of 1 centimeter per second squared for an object whose mass is equal to 1 gram.
