Enter the total speed (m/s) and the total force (N) into the calculator to determine the Power From Speed. 

Power From Speed Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Power From Speed. 

P = F * V

  • Where P is the Power From Speed (watts)
  • V is the total speed (m/s) 
  • F is the total force (N) 

How to Calculate Power From Speed?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Power From Speed.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total speed (m/s). In this example, the total speed (m/s) is measured to be 12.
  2. Next, determine the total force (N). For this problem, the total force (N) is calculated to be 58.
  3. Finally, calculate the Power From Speed using the formula above: 

P = F * V

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives: 

P = 12 * 58 = 696 (watts)

Example Problem #2: 

Using the same process as example problem 1, we first define the variables outlined by the formula. In this case, the values are:

total speed (m/s) = 39

total force (N) = 96

Entering these values into the formula or calculator above gives us:: 

P = 96 * 39 = 3744 (watts)
