Enter the total amount of power and the total force into the calculator to determine the speed/velocity.

Power to Speed Formula

The following formula is used to convert power into speed.

V = P / F

  • Where V is the speed (distance / time)
  • P is the power (work / time)
  • F is the force

How can power be converted into speed?

Power is a unit of work per unit of time, so to calculate the velocity of an object you must divide the power by a force to get speed.

How to calculate speed from power?

The following example problem outlines the steps required to calculate speed from power.

First, determine the power of the object. In this example, the power is 100 N*m/s.

Next, determine the force acting on the object. In this problem, the force is measured to be 10 N.

Finally, calculate the velocity using the formula above:

V = P / F

V = 100 / 10

V = 10 m/ s
