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) 

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)
