Hello Robbe,
Probes serve as a great way to measure the entities like force reaction, energy, displacement, etc. They can be scoped to a contact, surface, remote point, etc.
You can also verify the same by hand calculations if possible or use an energy probe and calculate the force accordingly with a user-defined result.
Please check the following reference for more details - Structural Probes (

Hope this helps!
