Enter the mass in kilograms (kg) and the acceleration into the calculator to determine the force.

KG to Force Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the force from kg.

F = kg * a

  • Where F is the force (N)
  • kg is the mass in kilograms
  • a is the acceleration (= 9.81 m/s^2 for gravity of Earth)

How to Calculate Force from KG?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate the force from kg.

First, measure the mass and convert the units to kilograms. In this example, the mass is measured to be 150 kg.

Next, determine the acceleration of the mass. For this problem, the mass is accelerating at 50 m/s^2.

Finally, calculate the force from KG using the formula above:

F = kg * a

F = 150 * 50

F = 7,500 N
