Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Let's begin by defining force in terms of our physical world. Which of these equations best sums up force?

Answer: Force = mass times acceleration

Force was first defined as mass multiplied by acceleration by Newton in his second law of motion. Generally, force is defined as any interaction that changes an object's motion and is often thought of as the push or pull on the object. It's this force that takes any object with mass and causes it to accelerate by changing its velocity. Therefore, we can measure the force on an object by measuring its change in velocity (i.e. acceleration) multiplied by the mass of the object.
2. G-Force is a physics term relating to extreme acceleration that induces perceptions of weight. However, the term has also been used in the entertainment field. Which of the following is NOT one of those instances?

Answer: G Force is the original name for the band Genesis

"G-force" has been used in many entertainment-related ways. "G Force" was the title of the second album for jazzman Kenny G. Released in 1983, it was a minor success reaching the top ten on the U.S. Jazz Album chart several years before his breakout album "Duotones" in 1986.

In 2009, Disney released "G-Force", a movie centered on a squad of guinea pigs sent on a secret mission by the U.S. government to save the world. This kids' film cleaned up at the box office raking in nearly 300 million dollars worldwide.

The cartoon "Battle of the Planets" was a 1970s American adaptation of a Japanese anime series that involved a group of five young people (known as G-Force) who attempted to save the Earth from evildoers attempting to attack the planet.

The band Genesis was never known as G-force.
3. The award-winning documentary "The Force" follows the reforms implemented by a city police department to help improve public relations with its citizens. What troubled west coast U.S. city is it set in, the same setting found in the films "Black Panther" and "Sorry To Bother You"?

Answer: Oakland

"The Force" directed by Peter Nicks is a powerful examination of how one police force attempted to remedy a history of scandal and mistrust in its racially divided city. Oakland has not only been the subject of documentaries but has been the hotbed of controversy in feature films. Oakland-born director Ryan Coogler set his breakout film "Fruitvale Station" there. Based on true events "Fruitvale Station" was about a young man killed by an Oakland police officer. Coogler then went back again to Oakland for his blockbuster "Black Panther". Boots Riley decided to set his scathing dark comedy "Sorry to Bother You" in Oakland.

This absurdist tale involves a black man trying to fit into a white world.
4. Which of the following is a contractual legal term used to free parties from responsibility from occurrences that are out of control of either party (such as an act of God)?

Answer: Force majeure

Force majeure is French for superior force which implies a force beyond anyone's control. In France, to prove force majeure one needs to satisfy three criteria - externality (defendant had no part in the event's occurrence), unpredictability (no one could have predicted said event) and irresistibility (events are unpreventable). Avoir de la force Is French for "to be strong" and "tour de force" is a tremendous accomplishment.
5. "Magnum Force" is a 1973 movie sequel to which of these classic movies?

Answer: Dirty Harry

"Magnum Force" was the sequel to the 1971 crime film "Dirty Harry". Clint Eastwood played Harry Callahan, an inspector in the San Francisco police department who in the first film tracked down a serial killer. It was probably most well-known for the line, "You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do you, punk?". "Dirty Harry" was a huge success at the time and was followed by four sequels, "Magnum Force" (1973), "The Enforcer" (1976), "Sudden Impact" (1983) and "The Dead Pool" (1988).
6. "All Cried Out" was a top ten single in the U.S. during the 1980s by Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam featuring which group who wrote and produced this smash hit?

Answer: Full Force

Full Force is a six-man hip-hop group that launched to stardom with their association with Lisa Lisa's "All Cried Out" in 1986. That song went to number eight in October that year on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart and reached the top five on the U.S. Billboard Black singles chart. Both major producers and writers, Full Force produced songs for Samantha Fox including "Naughty Girls (Need Love Too)" in the 80s, wrote songs for the Backstreet Boys and N'Sync in the 90s and collaborated with will.i.am on the Black Eyed Peas' top ten hit "Don't Phunk With My Heart" in the 2000s.
7. The call sign "Air Force One" was introduced in 1954 after which president's plane almost collided with a commercial airliner with the same flight number?

Answer: Dwight D. Eisenhower

Long considered the personal aircraft of the president of the United States, Air Force One first achieved that call sign back in 1954. Historians report that on a trip to Charlotte, N.C. in May, 1954 air traffic control indicated that Eisenhower's presidential plane had the same number as an Eastern Air Lines plane. A secret service agent on the plane overheard this and later recommended the unique call sign, Air Force One. Since then, the designation of Air Force One has been in effect but only if the president is on board.
8. "Forces of Nature" was a 1999 romantic comedy starring which of these two movie stars?

Answer: Sandra Bullock and Ben Affleck

"Forces of Nature" brought together the immense acting talents of Ben Affleck & Sandra Bullock. Parading as a light comedy, the plot centers on the two meeting on a plane and quickly bonding. This eventually leads Ben's character to question his impending marriage to his fiancée. Playing to mixed reviews, the movie was a moderate success making nearly 100 million dollars in its initial run.
9. The Metropolitan Police Service was one of the world's first modern police forces and created for which European city?

Answer: London

Sir Robert Peel, Prime Minister of the UK twice in the 1830s and 1840s, is credited with the creation of the Metropolitan Police Service, though the force was actually set up during his pre-Prime Ministerial tenure as Home Secretary. Prior to the Met, London didn't really have a dedicated policing force - parish constables were elected to keep watch over their parish, and the posts were usually unpaid. With London growing larger and crime becoming less manageable, it was clear that a new system was required.

In 1829, the Metropolitan Police Act was passed by parliament, spearheaded by Peel, to create London's first police service, with police officers (or 'bobbies') being paid positions to which anyone would be able to apply.
10. Of course, a quiz about force would not be complete without capping it off with a "Star Wars" question. "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" introduced us to the character Maz Kanata, a former pirate who ran an interstellar cantina. What Oscar-winning actress played this CGI character?

Answer: Lupita Nyong'o

Lupita Nyong'o, Oscar winner for Best Supporting Actress for the film "12 Years a Slave", played the role of Maz Kanata in both "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and "Star Wars: The Last Jedi". Kanata is an over 1000 year old pirate who settled on the planet of Takodana to run an interstellar bar. Filming was done with motion capture and Lupita was quoted in an interview as saying that playing this role "offered an opportunity to play something that wasn't limited by my physical circumstances" which made it "super challenging, super weird".
