public function AddRelativeForce(force: Vector3, mode: ForceMode = ForceMode.Force): void;
public void AddRelativeForce(Vector3 force, ForceMode mode = ForceMode.Force);

Parameters

forceIn local coordinate system.

Description

Adds a force to the rigidbody relative to its coordinate system.

Force can be applied only to an active rigidbody. If a GameObject is inactive, AddRelativeForce has no effect.
