The Physical Nature of Force

Authors: Guido F. Nelissen

The concept of 'force', which finds its origin in Newton's laws of motion, is one of the fundamental concepts of classical physics, as it is the basis of the fundamental notions of 'work' and 'energy'. The problem is that the present concept of 'force', as the momentum transfer per unit time, covers a wide variety of phenomena, which blurs the disclosure of its true nature. On the basis of the conclusion of my paper part 1, in which I have demonstrated that the 'linear momentum' of a mass particle system is a mathematical expression of its physical amount of congruent translational motion, I will in this paper reveal the physical meaning of the 'force' exerted between colliding bodies.
