A force is any influence that tends to change the motion of an object. Forces are everywhere. Just by existing on this planet, you are being subjected to a litany of forces simultaneously (e.g., gravity, friction). Understanding how to calculate and describe the various forces acting on a single object is important not only for understanding Newton’s laws of motion but also for excelling in classroom physics.

The course really helps to understand from 0 !
By Janine T. on 30. October 2020 for Newton‘s 2nd Law: Example, 2 Dimensions Part 1

I really understand thanks to you, because you are breaking everything into detail, which is great for someone like me, who still needs to understand the basic concepts in physics!
