Enter the mass of the hammer and the acceleration of the hammer into the calculator to determine the hammer force.

Hammer Force Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Hammer Force.

HF = m * a

  • Where HF is the hammer force (N)
  • m is the mass of the hammer (kg)
  • a is the acceleration of the hammer (m/s^2)

To calculate the hammer force, multiply the hammer mass by the hammer acceleration.

What is a Hammer Force?

Definition:

A hammer force is defined as the total force delivered to a nail by a hammer. The higher the acceleration and the higher the mass, the greater the hammer force.

How to Calculate Hammer Force?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate the Hammer Force.

First, determine the hammer mass. For this problem, the hammer mass is 3.25 kg.

Next, determine the acceleration of the hammer. In this problem, the hammer is accelerating at 30 m/s^2.

Finally, calculate the hammer force using the formula above:

HF = m * a

HF = 3.25*30

HF = 67.5 N
