Examples of word force
What we want to do is to increase the attractive force, in order to prevent this tangential motion -- to increase the _force of gravity_.
The dynamical force, that which produces motion, is the centripetal force, drawing the body continually from the tangential direction, toward the center; and what is termed centrifugal force is merely the resistance which the body opposes to this deflection, _precisely like any other resistance to a force_.
At present I will proceed to consider the second of the forces, or manifestations of force, which are developed in moving bodies -- _centrifugal force_.
In many cases it is desirable to force water considerably above the pump itself, as, for instance, in the fire hose; under such circumstances a type of pump is employed which has received the name of _force pump_.
Yet to force any of our principles upon her attention when she is in a hostile mood -- or to _force_ them, indeed, in any mood -- is to invite just this attitude.
