What if we wouldn't define a force as F=dp/dt but instead as a function of(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]F=F(p,q,\dot{p},\dot{q})[/tex]

How will this change the equations of physics?

Maybe there are cases where the force behaves as [tex]k\cdot \frac{dp}{dq}[/tex] where 'k' is some constant to fix the dimensions.

I am just tinkering with this idea, really.
