What is the newton unit of measure?

Answer

Newtons are the unit of measurement for force. One newton is the amount of force that is required to accelerate an object that is 1 kilogram in mass at the rate of 1 meter per second.

This unit of measurement was named after physicist and mathematician Sir Isaac Newton, who first understood and explained the nature of gravity, which is the most widely observable force in the universe. Gravity is the force of attraction that two objects exert on each other. It is the force that pulls children back to the ground when they jump up in the air. It is the force that allows satellites, including natural ones like the moon, to stay in orbit around the Earth, and the Earth to stay in orbit around the sun.
