Why can't we feel any force unless the force is opposed by other force ??
E.g. we don't feel our weight unless we stand on rigid bodies or other supports . When we are in air or when we jump from a height we feel weightless because there is no force opposing our weight.
So my question is why and how do such crazy things happen ?
NOTE : I have felt this effect even while I was on my bicycle. When I was accelerated by the paddling force (which was much greater than the friction force ) I can't feel that paddling force but when I was applying less force and friction was just smaller than the latter I felt that force.
Does this mean that we need a force in opposite direction of an existing force to feel the existing force ??
Is it proper to correlate the first and the second example ( in the note) ??
Note : it is given in my Ncert textbook of class 11th too.
The force pulls all the molecules and thus we should feel it but we don't.
