Enter the magnitude and direction of up to 5 different acceleration vectors into the calculator to determine the resultant acceleration.

Resultant Acceleration Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a resultant acceleration.

Ax = A1*cos(a1) + A2*cos(a2) + …

Ay = A1*sin(a1) +A2*sin(a2) +…

Amag = SQRT(Vx^2 + Vy^2)

  • Where Ax is the resultant x-acceleration
  • Ay is the resultant y-acceleration
  • A1 – A5 are the individual accelerations
  • a1 – a5 are the angle of the accelerations
