About RF Cafe Copyright: 1996 - 2024Webmaster:     BSEE - KB3UON RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

# Force Units Conversions

In physics, force is that which, when applied to an object of mass, tends to set that object in motion by causing an acceleration. Force is mathematically equal to the time rate of change of the momentum of the mass on which it acts. This is commonly referred to as Newton's Second Law of Motion, where  F = m * a.
