public enum KindOfForce
  Member nameDescription
NewtonianForce A Newtonian force which may be applied to any given point mass to produce an acceleration. For example, atmospheric drag is a Newtonian force.
NewtonianSpecificForce A Newtonian "specific" force which takes the target mass into account to produce a force independent of mass. For example, gravity is a specific force.
NewtonianReactionForce A Newtonian "reaction" force is a force which results from the change in mass of a system. Usually, a reaction force is equivalent to "thrust" on a body and acts on the instantaneous point-mass in proportion to the rate of change of the mass of the system.
