Enter the mechanical work done (J) and the time (s) into the calculator to determine the Mechanical Power.

## Mechanical Power Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Mechanical Power.

**MP = MW / T**

- Where MP is the Mechanical Power (watts)
- MW is the mechanical work done (J)
- T is the time (s)

## How to Calculate Mechanical Power?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Mechanical Power.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the mechanical work done (J). In this example, the mechanical work done (J) is measured to be 90.
- Next, determine the time (s). For this problem, the time (s) is calculated to be 3.
- Finally, calculate the Mechanical Power using the formula above:

MP = MW / T

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

MP = 90 / 3 = 30 (watts)

**Example Problem #2: **

Using the same process as example problem 1, we first define the variables outlined by the formula. In this case, the values are:

mechanical work done (J) = 70

time (s) = 35

Entering these values into the formula or calculator above gives us::

MP = 70 / 35 = 2 (watts)
