Enter the force (N), the distance (m), and the time (s) into the calculator to determine the Rate of Work. 

Rate of Work Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Rate of Work.

ROW = F*d / t

  • Where ROW is the Rate of Work (J/s)
  • F is the force (N) 
  • d is the distance (m) 
  • t is the time (s) 

How to Calculate Rate of Work?

The following example problems outline how to calculate the Rate of Work.

Example Problem #1

  1. First, determine the force (N). In this example, the force (N) is given as 15 .
  2. Next, determine the distance (m). For this problem, the distance (m) is given as  6 .
  3. Next, determine the time (s). In this case, the time (s) is found to be 7.
  4. Finally, calculate the Rate of Work using the formula above: 

ROW = F*d / t

Inserting the values from above and solving yields: 

ROW = 15*6 / 7 = 12.857 (J/s)


Example Problem #2

Using the same method as above, determine the variables required by the equation. For this example problem, these are provided as:

force (N) = 8

distance (m) = 4

time (s) = 5

Enter these given values yields: 

ROW = 8*4 / 5 = 6.4 (J/s)
