Enter the total acceleration (m/s^2), the total time (s), and the mass (kg) into the calculator to determine the Energy from Acceleration. 

Energy from Acceleration Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Energy from Acceleration.

E = a*t*m

  • Where E is the Energy from Acceleration (Joules)
  • a is the total acceleration (m/s^2) 
  • t is the total time (s) 
  • m is the mass (kg) 

How to Calculate Energy from Acceleration?

The following example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Energy from Acceleration.

Example Problem #1

  1. First, determine the total acceleration (m/s^2). In this example, the total acceleration (m/s^2) is determined to be 4 .
  2. Next, determine the total time (s). For this problem, the total time (s) is measured to be 5 .
  3. Next, determine the mass (kg). In this case, the mass (kg) is found to be 4.
  4. Finally, calculate the Energy from Acceleration using the formula above: 

E = a*t*m

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation yields: 

E = 4*5*4 = 80 (Joules)

Example Problem #2

Using the same method as above, first, we need to measure or determine the variables required by the equation. For this example problem, these are provided as follows: 

total acceleration (m/s^2) = 6

total time (s) = 8

mass (kg) = 3

Enter these given values into the calculator or above yields: 

E = 6*8*3 = 144 (Joules)
