Enter the velocity, mass, and time into the calculator to determine the force from velocity.

Velocity to Force Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Velocity to Force.

F = m * (v/t)
  • Where F is the force (N)
  • m is the mass (kg)
  • v is the change in velocity (m/s)
  • t is the change in time (s)

To calculate force from velocity, divide the velocity by the change in time, then multiply by the mass.

Can you Convert Velocity to Force?

Yes, converting between velocity and force involves converting the velocity into acceleration. This is done by dividing the change in velocity by the change in time. After you have the acceleration, multiply by the mass to get force.

How to Convert Velocity to Force?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to convert Velocity to Force.

First, determine the mass of the object. In this example, the mass of the moving object is measured to be 5 kg.

Next, determine the change in velocity. This object undergoes a change in velocity of 15 m/s.

Next, determine the change in time. This change in velocity occurred over 5 seconds.

Finally, calculate the force from velocity using the formula above:

F = m * (v/t)

F = 5 * (15/5)

F = 15 N
