The Work calculator uses the equation, W= F⋅d, to computes the work done when a force (F) is applied to move a mass some distance (d).
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose the preferred units and enter the following:
Work (w): The calculator returns the work in Newton meters (N•m). However, this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.
The formula for work is:
Work in this equation is a function of a constant force, |F|, in the direction of (F).
The standard SI unit for Work is a Joule (J) when the input parameters are also in SI units (newtons and meters).
A more general representation of this work= force*distance relationship integrates the force applied over the distance spanned, X.
