    Default Measuring force.

    Has anyone ever seen an online resource, or other that has information on the amount of force created by people and objects? Thanks!

    Default force

    IN which direction and at what velocity? Vertically and stationary, it is whatever they weigh. Under any other condition is is a function of mass and velocity.

    Yeah, F=mA, but keep your units consistent.

    If A is the accel. of gravity at 32.2 ft/seconds squared and F = 161 pounds = a person's weight, that person's mass in "slugs" is 5.
