Enter the total energy and the total distance into the calculator to determine the force from energy.

Energy To Force Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Energy To Force.

F = E/d

  • Where F is the force (N)
  • E is the energy (Joules)
  • d is the distance (m)

To calculate force from energy, divide the total energy by the distance that the force was acting on the object.

Can Energy be Converted to Force?

Definition:

Energy is a unit of measure of force times distance, so to convert it into force, you divide by the distance over which the force acted on the object.

How to Convert Energy to Force?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate force from energy.

First, determine the total amount of energy. In this example problem, the total amount of energy is 500 joules.

Next, determine the distance over which the force acted on the object. In this case, the distance is 5m.

Finally, calculate the force using the formula above:

F = E/d

F = 500/5

F = 100 N
