There are four (4) that can be identified in all the forces acting on the object. Normal force, \vec{n} is a component that is perpendicular to the contact surface. The resistance of the air, \vec{D} is a type of friction is a force that acts opposite to the relative motion of any object moving with respect to a surrounding fluid. The force of kinetic friction, \vec{f}_k is µk times the normal force on an object and is expressed in units of Newtons. Weight, \vec{w} is a force caused by gravity and is measured in Newtons.
