What is the difference between remote force and force?

The difference between remote force and force is that it allows the ability to define the location of the force (and not predetermined by selecting the faces of geometry like the force command), as illustrated below

Another key difference between remote force and force is that remote force also induces moment/torque as soon as remote point is defined other than (0,0,0)

A good example of this is when tightening a bolt using a wrench which is fully illustrated by our friends @ Being Inventive and the full article can be read at
