Enter the inertial force and the inertial mass into the calculator to determine the Inertia Acceleration. 

Inertia Acceleration Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Inertia Acceleration.

IA = IF / IM
  • Where IA is the Inertia Acceleration (m/s^2)
  • IF is the inertial force (N)
  • IM is the inertial mass (kg)

To calculate the inertial acceleration, divide the inertial force by the inertial mass.

What are the units for Inertia Acceleration?

The most common units for Inertia Acceleration are m/s^2.

How to Calculate Inertia Acceleration?

Example Problem:

The following example problem outlines the steps and information needed to calculate the Inertia Acceleration.

First, determine the inertial force. In this example, the inertial force is determined to be 16 (N).

Next, determine the inertial mass. For this problem, the inertial mass is measured to be 2 (kg).

Finally, calculate the Inertia Acceleration using the formula above: 

IA = IF / IM

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

IA = 16 / 2 = 8 (m/s^2)
