### Which of the following is the SI Measurement for Force?

• A.

Joule

• B.

Watt

• C.

Metre

• D.

Second

• E.

Newton

E. Newton
Explanation
Newton is the SI unit for force. It is named after Sir Isaac Newton, a renowned physicist. The Newton is defined as the amount of force required to accelerate a one-kilogram mass by one meter per second squared. It is commonly used to measure the force exerted on an object or the force required to move an object. Other options such as Joule, Watt, Metre, and Second are SI units for energy, power, distance, and time, respectively, and are not directly related to force.
