Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok but there is this physics problem concerning the force of a bacteria....my teacher's answer was in kgm/s but most of the students in the class put N! what to do?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm sure he/she meant to write kg.m/s^2, as kg.m/s is NOT a unit of force.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[ \frac{kg.m}{s^2} = kg.m.s^{2} \] This comes from Newton's second law, \[ F = ma \] The units of mass, m, is kg. The units of acceleration a, is m/s^2. Hence the units of force is kg.m/s^2
