        (Isaac can't believe what Ariana is saying, he turns away)

ARIANA -  You seem...upset/.....

        (He just shakes his head)

ARIANA -  Maybe I can explain using terms you might understand.  Things like velocity and force.....our hacker friend has an incredible power, a force.....and that force is currently directed towards......let's call it.....the negative side of the graph.

But if we can exert our own force, such as....

ISAAC -  A threat?

ARIANA -  Let's call it a suggestion.....that if he changes the direction of his force towards the positive side of the graph, then things will be  more....positive.....

ISAAC -  And he won't go to jail where other people might be...mean to him.

ARIANA -  Such is the nature of suggestion......

ISAAC -  And you don't see anything wrong with this?  Any fundamental problem with this analysis?  As in the ultimate positive and negative of right and wrong?

ARIANA -  All the way you look at the numbers, isn't it?

ISAAC -  And what happened to the concept two wrongs don't make a right?

ARIANA -  But two negatives make a positive......

ISAAC -  Only in multiplication.....not when you add them, two negatives added together just means more negativity.....

ARIANA -  So I guess....this is where the intersection.....stops......we have reached the point....of no return.....

ISAAC -  I guess...you're right....there is no point in turning back now.....

Since force cause changes in the speed or direction of an object, we can say that forces cause changes in velocity. Remember that acceleration is a change in velocity. So forces cause acceleration.
Remember the following things about forces:
  • Forces are measured in Newtons (N).
  • Forces act in pairs.
  • Forces act in a particular direction.
  • Forces usually cannot be seen, but their effects can.
