Forces are all around us. They come in various types and sorts. For example, objects that are thrown up invariably come down due to the force of gravity; there are pushes and pulls that we exert on each other; springs, that operate, say, in vehicle suspensions, which cushion the painful effects of bumps; magnetic forces that appear to act mysteriously to always align the needle of a compass towards the North; forces exerted by hurricanes; the amazingly powerful forces of disintegration unleashed by nuclear bombs and so on. The list is practically endless!
