BIOM 322 Notes January 6, 2008 Concept of Force : Force is a mechanical disturbance or load It can do the following: 1) Cause a deformation 2) Cause a flow 3) Cause a motion Physical effect of a force depends on: 1) Magnitude 2) Orientation of the force 3) Point of application Forces are vectors (with direction and magnitude) Key Types of Forces : 1) External force (most commonly known) 2) Internal force Generated in response to an external force 3) Gravitational forces
