Enter the pellet mass (kg) and the pellet velocity (m/s) into the calculator to determine the Pellet Energy.

## Pellet Energy Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Pellet Energy.

PE = 1/2*PM*PV^2

Variables:

• Where PE is the Pellet Energy (Joules)
• PM is the pellet mass (kg)
• PV is the pellet velocity (m/s)

To calculate the pellet energy, multiply the pellet mass by the pellet velocity squared, then divide by 2.

## How to Calculate Pellet Energy?

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed in order to calculate the Pellet Energy.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the pellet mass (kg). In this example, the pellet mass (kg) is measured to be 58.
2. Next, determine the pellet velocity (m/s). For this problem, the pellet velocity (m/s) is calculated to be 94.
3. Finally, calculate the Pellet Energy using the formula above:

PE = 1/2*PM*PV^2

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

PE = 1/2*58*94^2 = 256244 (Joules)

Example Problem #2:

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

pellet mass (kg) = 139

pellet velocity (m/s) = 10

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

PE = 1/2*139*10^2 = 6950 (Joules)
