Rigidbody.AddRelativeForce

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

Description

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

As a result the rigidbody will start moving.

// Moves the rigidbody forward along its own z-axis
function FixedUpdate () {
rigidbody.AddRelativeForce (Vector3.forward * 10);
}

function AddRelativeForce (x : float, y : float, z : float, mode : ForceMode = ForceMode.Force) : void

Description

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

As a result the rigidbody will start moving.

// Moves the rigidbody forward along its own z-axis
function FixedUpdate () {
rigidbody.AddRelativeForce (0, 0, 10);
}

If you want to apply a force over several frames you should apply it inside FixedUpdate instead of Update.
