[Question #681383]: problem of the unit of normal force in Law2_PolyhedraGeom_PolyhedraPhys_Volumetric


New question #681383 on Yade:

i am read the source code of yade and noticed that the normal force between two polyhedra is calculated by:
while kn is calculated by:
contactPhysics->kn = Kna*Knb/(Kna+Knb) 
the problem is that the unit of kn is Pa,when it multipy with volume, with unit of m³,  then the unit of normal force become N.m,but it suppose to be N. 
look forward for your answer
