Enter the total mass of the object and the acceleration of the object due to a pulling force into the calculator to determine the pull force.

Pull Force Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Pull Force.

Fp = m * a(p)

  • Where Fp is the pull force (N)
  • m is the mass of the object being pulled on (kg)
  • a(p) is the acceleration of the object due to the pull force (m/s^2)

To calculate the pull force, multiply the acceleration due to pulling by the mass of the object.

What is a Pull Force?

Definition:

A pull force is a force that pulls on an object and causes it to accelerating in the same direction as the pulling.

How to Calculate Pull Force?

Example Problem:

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

First, determine the mass of the object. In this example, the mass of the object is 5 kg.

Next, determine the acceleration caused by the pulling. For this problem, a tension pull force causes the object to accelerate at 3 m/s^2.

Finally, calculate the pull force using the formula above:

Fp = m * a(p)

Fp = 5 * 3

Fp = 15 N
