Force is defined as the product of mass times acceleration (F * a). 

In psychology, force refers to a concept that involves the influence that one person, group, or entity has over another person, group, or entity. Force can take many forms, including physical, psychological, social, and cultural.

Examples of the concept of force in psychology include:

  1. Social influence - The study of how people are influenced by others in group situations, such as conformity, obedience, and persuasion.

  2. Power and authority - The study of how people and groups exert control over others through the use of power and authority.

  3. Coercion - The use of threats or intimidation to force someone to do something against their will.

  4. Interpersonal violence - The study of physical, psychological, or sexual violence between individuals in close relationships, such as domestic violence and sexual assault.

  5. Peer pressure - The influence that peers have over an individual's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

  6. Persuasion - The study of how people are influenced to change their attitudes and beliefs through verbal and nonverbal communication.

  7. Social norms - The study of how unwritten rules and expectations in a society can exert influence over an individual's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

In psychology, the concept of force is studied to better understand how individuals and groups interact and influence one another, and how these interactions can impact thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. The study of force also has practical applications, such as in the development of interventions to reduce violence and aggression, and improve social relationships and communication.
