FORCES

we have learnt that a force is defined as a push or a pull.

Now, one thing that puzzles me since i was in secondary school is that if i apply a force on an object, what determines the maximum speed it can reach?

i am glad to have finally thought of the answer! according to the formula F=ma, when the force is exerted for 1 second, then the velocity of the object increases by the value of acceleration a, which measures the change in velocity per second.
