## Energy Loss From Friction Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Energy Loss From Friction.

EFL = FF * D

- Where EFL is the Energy Loss From Friction (N-m (J))
- FF is the force due to friction (N)
- D is the distance of force (m)

To calculate the energy loss from friction, multiply the force due to friction by the total distance.

## How to Calculate Energy Loss From Friction?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Energy Loss From Friction.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the force due to friction (N). In this example, the force due to friction (N) is given as 54.
- Next, determine the distance of force (N). For this problem, the distance of force (N) is given as 3.
- Finally, calculate the Energy Loss From Friction using the equation above:

E-FL = FF * D

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation:

E-FL = 54 * 3 = 162 (N-m (J))

**Example Problem #2: **

Using the same process as above, first define the variables required by the formula. In this case, these values are provided as the following:

force due to friction (N) = 600

distance of force (N) = 3

Entering these values gives:

E-FL = 600 * 3 = 1800 (N-m (J))
