In this sentence why don´t use viele Kraft?
I think use of ''viel'' in sentences before a name is different? Can anyone explain to me please?

    “Kraft” is uncountable, so “viel” doesn’t get declined.

    viel Kraft, viel Erfolg, viel Spaß, viel Mut, viel Energie
    viel Milch, viel Bier, viel Brot, viel Essen
    etc.

    I think elroy is right.

    "Viel" seems to be an exception among "adjectives" combined with uncountable nouns: "grossen Mut", "alle Kraft", "ganze Arbeit", "faulen Salat" (examples in Akkusativ).

    The difference between "viel" (invariable) and "viele" (decinable) is the same as between "much" and many".
    You wouldn't say "many force", would you?
