## Main Question or Discussion Point

I was wondering if someone could help me out with understanding the intuition behind multiplied units.

For example, with speed, the units are divided (distance/time, m/s, etc.). The unit means how many meters you go in one second, which is the value received after dividing the distance by the time. But with work, it's force times distance (and with force, it's kg times acceleration). I'm trying to figure out what that represents, but I'm stumped. I was wondering if someone might be able to help me with this.

Thank you
