Enter the total force (N) and the distance/displacement (m) into the calculator to determine the Work From Force.

## Work From Force Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Work From Force.

Wf  = F * X
• Where Wf is the Work From Force (Joules)
• F is the total force (N)
• X is the distance/displacement (m)

To calculate work from the force, multiply the total force by the distance.

## How to Calculate Work From Force?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Work From Force.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total force (N). In this example, the total force (N) is given as 5.
2. Next, determine the distance/displacement (m). For this problem, the distance/displacement (m) is given as 7.
3. Finally, calculate the Work From Force using the equation above:

Wf  = F * X

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

Wf  = 5 * 7 = 35 (Joules)

Example Problem #2:

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

total force (N) = 8

distance/displacement (m) = 9

Entering these values yields:

Wf  = 8 * 9 = 72 (Joules)
