Enter the mass and the acceleration caused by the near force into the calculator to determine the near force.

Near Force Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Near Force.

NF = m * A
  • Where NF is the near force (N)
  • m is the mass (kg)
  • A is the acceleration (m/s^2)

To calculate the near force, simply multiply the mass by the acceleration.

What is a Near Force?


A near force is defined as the total net force near an object. This excludes other forces at far distances.

How to Calculate Near Force?

Example Problem:

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

First, determine the acceleration. In this example, the acceleration is found to be 40 m/s^2.

Next, determine the mass. For this problem, the mass is found to be 3kg.

Finally, calculate the Near Force using the formula above:

NF = m * A

NF = 40 * 3

NF = 120 N
