# Poust (naitural philosophy)

whit chynges or tends tae chynge a state o rest or motion in an object
(Reguidit frae Force)

In naitural philosophy, Poust is whit chynges or tends tae chynge a state o rest or motion in an object. Poust causes objects tae accelerate, add tae the object's owerall pressur, or chynge direction. Poust is measured in Newtons (N).

Accordin tae Newton's Seicont Law o Motion, the formula for findin poust is:

${\displaystyle F=ma}$

whaur ${\displaystyle F}$ is the poust,
${\displaystyle m}$ is the mass o an object,
an ${\displaystyle a}$ is the acceleration o the object.

If ye set ${\displaystyle a}$ tae the staundart gravity g, than anither formula can be fund:

${\displaystyle W=mg}$

whaur ${\displaystyle W}$ is the wecht o an object,
${\displaystyle m}$ is the mass o an object,
an ${\displaystyle g}$ is the acceleration due tae gravity at sea level. It is aboot ${\displaystyle 9.8m/s^{2}}$.

Poust is a vector, sae it haes baith a magnitude an a direction.
