    Default Rise or raise

    Hello i have a question about the phrase ''rising force''.I know that rise is an intransitive verb and it does not take any object ,so is it the above phrase correct?Isn't it better to say raising force because the verb raise is a transitive verb and needs an objectl.In this case the object is force.

    Thank you

    When you post the context, please concentrate on your punctuation.

    - Do not put a space before a comma.
    - Put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark, exclamation mark.
    - Remember to put the relevant punctuation mark at the end of every sentence.

    Thank you.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
