# What are the types of forces?

## 1-What is force-

When objects interact with each other, this force exerts a push or pull. cause is formed. For example, when you try to push a ball, it is because of the force acting on the ball that changes its speed.

A force applied from outside has the ability to change the position of a particular object. The direction in which the force is applied is known as the direction of that force. In this post, we will discuss everything related to force including its formula and types. Check out the article given below to learn about the force.

## 2-types of Force:

There are different types of forces that act on an object. Here are some of the commonly applied types of force:

1. muscular force
2. mechanical force
3. Frictional force
4. gravitational force
5. electrostatic force
6. magnetic force

Let us have a look at the types of force in detail:

## 1-muscular force

It can be simply defined as the force that we apply to daily work, like we lift, breathe, exercise etc. It acts after coming in contact with the object. This force is due to the action of our muscles. When we use our muscles to perform daily tasks, the force of the muscles is exerted on the object.

2. Mechanical Force:

Mechanical force occurs when there is direct contact between two objects where one object is applying force while the other object is in a state of rest or in a state of motion. Someone pushing a door is an example of mechanical force.

3. Frictional Force

Frictional force is the opposing force between two surfaces whose main purpose is to create resistance to an object moving in the same direction or opposite direction. When we ride a bicycle, a frictional force acts.

4. Gravitational Force

Gravitational force is the force of attraction that attracts two objects with mass. Earth’s gravitational force pulls us to the ground. It always tries to pull people towards each other and never tries to separate them. It can be defined as Newton’s universal law of gravitation.

5. Electromagnetic Force:

The electromagnetic force is also known as the Coulomb force or the Coulomb interaction. It is the force between two electrically charged objects. According to this force, just as charges attract each other, opposites repel. Lightning is an example of an electromagnetic force.

6. Magnetic Force:

Magnetic force is the force that arises between electrically charged particles due to their motion. The magnetic force can be observed between the poles of the 2 magnets. It is attractive or repulsive in nature depending on the orientation of the object. This can be called an example of magnetic force (electrostatic force).

## 7-static electric force-

The main reason for this force is electric charge. A charged object is attracted by another charged object or uncharged object without direct contact. This force is called static electric force. If the comb is brought near the pieces of paper by rubbing it in dry hair, then the comb attracts the pieces of paper by this force.

## 8-contact force-

In this force, contact with the object is not required. It is of three types- magnetic force, electrostatic force, gravitational force.
