The Force Calculator (F = m•a) computes net force based on the acceleration (a) and mass (m).
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Force (F): The calculator returns force (F) in newtons. However, this can be automatically converted to other force units via the pull-down menu.
Newton's second law formula (F = m•a) shows the relationship between mass, acceleration and force. The three forms of the equation are as follows:
Acceleration results in the direction of the net force, which in this equation is represented by a single force.
