Enter the mass of an object, the initial and final velocities, and the change in time of an object under acceleration to calculate the force.

## Newton’s Second Law Formula

The following equations are used by the calculator above to determine the force acting on an object under acceleration.

a = F / m

- Where a is acceleration
- F is force
- m is mass

Since we know that acceleration is the rate of change of velocity over time, then we can rearrange the equation to the following:

F = m * (vf – vi) / t

- Where F is force
- m is mass
- vf is final velocity
- vi is initial velocity
- t is change in time

## Newton’s Second Law Definition

Newton’s Second Law states that the acceleration of an object is equal to the force acting on that object divided by the mass.
