`W = F * d `

Enter a value for all fields

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:

- (
**F**) - This is the force applied - (
**d**) - This is the distance the mass is moved

**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:

where:

- W is the work, typically in units of Newton meters (N•m)
- F is the force
- d is the distance over which the force is applied.

**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.
