Enter the frequency and the amplitude into the calculator to determine the Acceleration From Amplitude. 

Acceleration From Amplitude Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Acceleration From Amplitude.

A = 2*pi*F^2*AMP/ g
  • Where A is the Acceleration From Amplitude (m/s^2)
  • F is the frequency (Hz)
  • AMP is the amplitude (m)
  • g is the acceleration due to gravity (9.81 m/s^2)

To calculate the acceleration from amplitude, multiply 2 times pi by the frequency squared, multiply by the amplitude, then divide by 9.81.

What are the units for Acceleration From Amplitude?

The most common units for Acceleration From Amplitude are m/s^2.

How to Calculate Acceleration From Amplitude?

Example Problem:

The following example problem outlines the steps and information needed to calculate the Acceleration From Amplitude.

First, determine the frequency. In this example, the frequency is determined to be 150 (hz).

Next, determine the amplitude. For this problem, the amplitude is measured to be 3 (m).

Finally, calculate the Acceleration From Amplitude using the formula above: 

A = 2*pi*F^2*AMP/ g

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives: 

A = 2*3.14159*150^2*3/ 9.81 = 43232.8899083 (m/s^2)
