Enter the total force (N), the distance (m), and the time (s) into the calculator to determine the Energy from Force. 

Energy from Force Formula

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

E = F*d*t

  • Where E is the Energy from Force (Joules)
  • F is the total force (N) 
  • d is the distance (m) 
  • t is the time (s) 

How to Calculate Energy from Force?

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

Example Problem #1

  1. First, determine the total force (N). In this example, the total force (N) is determined to be 4 .
  2. Next, determine the distance (m). For this problem, the distance (m) is measured to be 8 .
  3. Next, determine the time (s). In this case, the time (s) is found to be 3.
  4. Finally, calculate the Energy from Force using the formula above: 

E = F*d*t

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation yields: 

E = 4*8*3 = 96 (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 force (N) = 9

distance (m) = 4

time (s) = 3

Enter these given values into the calculator or above yields: 

E = 9*4*3 = 108 (Joules)
