The force is always measured in **Newton** and is denoted by **N**. 1Newton force is equivalent to the force required to accelerate **one kilogram** of mass, at the rate of one metre per second squared or **Kgms ^{-2}**.

Numerically, it is given by, **F** = **m × a**

Where **m** is the **mass** and **a** is the **acceleration**.

**Some Other Units of Force are Given Below : **

- 1 dyne =
**10**^{-5}N - 1 kilogram - force (kgf) or kilopound (kp) =
**9.80665**N - 1 lbf =
**32.174**poundals = 1 slug - 1 kgf =
**2.2046**lbf
