Problem 2CQ

What properties do forces have that allow us to classify them as vectors?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 1

The force is defined as product of mass and acceleration. Mass is a scalar and the acceleration is a vector . By the law of mathematics , a vector times positive scalar just changes the length of a vector , but never its direction, since it retains direction and magnitude .thus force must be a vector in the same direction as the acceleration.

Step 2 of 1
