“Não lugar”
For there to be movement it is necessary to apply force on a given body. The force applied depends on the body weight applying force. The resulting speed of interaction between objects and or bodies is variable depending on the point where the force was applied. At a given space, the greater the number of bodies, the greater the likelihood of interaction between these bodies, creating force and speed.
