Enter the shock spring rate (N/m) and the total shock extension (m) into the Shock Spring Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Shock Spring Weight. 

Shock Spring Weight Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Shock Spring Weight.



  • SSW is the Shock Spring Weight (N)
  • SR is the shock spring rate (N/m) 
  • SE is the total shock extension (m) 

To calculate the shock spring weight, multiply the shock spring rate by the shock extension.

How to Calculate Shock Spring Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Shock Spring Weight.

  1. First, determine the shock spring rate (N/m). 
  2. Next, determine the total shock extension (m). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = SSW = SR * SE.
  4. Finally, calculate the Shock Spring Weight.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

shock spring rate (N/m) = 200

total shock extension (m) = .25

SSW = SR * SE = ?
