- Can someone help me get a better perspective on newtons

I would just like to get a perspective on how much is an x amount of Newtons, like in real world examples.

I know everyone says 100N is about equal to the force of a 10kg object being set on you, but this example really only gives perspective on downwards force.

For example I calculated the force that would be applied to your legs if you jump out of a plane, but I relised the result didn't give me a real perspective on how that would effect a human.

Maybe this is a somewhat uninteresting question but I would really like to understand the answers to my equations just a bit better
