May the Forces Be with You!
Sirola, Christopher
Physics Teacher, v56 n2 p118-119 Feb 2018
In everyday life, we usually directly note two basic forces: gravity and electromagnetism. Gravity--as in the acceleration due to Earth's gravity--tends to be a background force of sorts, something that is always present and always the same. We don't always see electricity and/or magnetism as such, but their subsidiaries are all around us--friction, normal force, tension, springs, and the like.
