The air resistance is a special type of frictional force that acts upon objects as they travel through the air. The force of air resistance is often observed to oppose the motion of an object. This force will frequently be neglected due to its negligible magnitude (and due to the fact that it is mathematically difficult to predict its value).
In this article, you glanced through the concept of force and took an in-depth look at contact force and its types, namely, frictional force, applied force and Normal force. Other types of contact forces outside the scope of syllabus include Air Resistance Force, Tension Force and Spring Force.
The fundamental forces like gravity, electromagnetic force etc in nature are non contact forces. Contact force is nothing but the force caused by the peripheral interaction between the bodies. One example of contact force is the frictional force. Contact forces plays an important role in our day to day life.
Spring Force F spring: The spring force is the force exerted by a compressed or stretched spring upon any object that is attached to it. An object that compresses or stretches a spring is always acted upon by a force that restores the object to its rest or equilibrium position.
The tension force is the force that is transmitted through a string, rope, cable or wire when it is pulled tight by forces acting from opposite ends. The tension force is directed along the length of the wire and pulls equally on the objects on the opposite ends of the wire.
