Oops, divided by one too many seconds.
So what is a W/s, and what is it used for?

Ok in laymans terms I still need a demonstration to understand
Do you need someone to push you?
What kind of demonstration are you looking for? It's more confusing in English units when you start talking about lbs-force.
1 N = 1 kg m/s^2
The acceleration due to gravity is G = 9.81 m/s^2, so 1 N/G = 1/9.81 kg, or ~102 grams, which is ~3.6 ounces. This means 1 Newton is the force required for you to keep 3.6 ounces from falling, and ~3 Newtons might have been needed for Isaac to hold the apple that hit his head (assuming it was an average eating apple, there's a lot of slop there
