Forces

Back to Physics Grade 11/12

When we were introduced to Forces in Grade 9 and 10, we learned that they can be classified as contact and non-contact. We can also classify forces based on how much of the entity they act on. Those that act throughout the entire body of an entity are called body forces, and those that act either internally, or on the surface of an entity are called surface forces.
