The following quote was in a post now closed:

"i dont know how this person says that acceleration is not in direction of force

there fore angle HAS to be zero degrees."

If "force" is meant to be dp/dt, then "acceleration is not in direction of force."

Since dp/dt=m\gamma^3[a+vX(vXa)], there are important cases where

"acceleration is not in direction of force."
