**Calculate the force required for an 8 pound wagon to accelerate at 7 m/s**

^{2}.- First, convert all your units to SI. One pound is equal to .453 kg, so you'll need to multiply that value by your 8 pounds to determine the mass.
- Multiply your new value for the mass (3.62 kg) by your acceleration value (7 m/s
^{2}).

Similarly, you may ask, what is the formula of calculating force?

This

**equation**is one of the most useful in classical physics. It is a concise statement of Isaac Newton's Second Law of Motion, holding both the proportions and vectors of the Second Law. It translates as: The net**force**on an object is equal to the mass of the object multiplied by the acceleration of the object.1

## What is the formula for normal force?

In this equation, N refers to the normal force, m refers to the object's

**mass**, and g refers to the acceleration of gravity. For an object sitting on a flat surface, with no outside forces at work, the normal force is equal to the object's weight.2

## How much is one newton of force?

Bench pressing

**100 pounds**(45 kg) takes a little under 450 N of force. 441 N = 45 kg × 9.80665 m/s2. Commonly seen as kilonewtons. A newton is not much force, so it is common to see forces expressed in kilonewtons, or kN, where 1 kN = 1000 N.3

## What is an example of a normal force?

The

**normal force**is the support**force**exerted upon an object that is in contact with another stable object. For**example**, if a book is resting upon a surface, then the surface is exerting an upward**force**upon the book in order to support the weight of the book.4

## How do you find energy?

**Part 2**

**Calculating Kinetic Energy**

- Write the equation. The formula for calculating kinetic energy (KE) is KE = 0.5 x mv
^{2}. - Plug the mass and velocity into the equation. If you don't know the mass or velocity of the object, then you'll have to calculate it.
- Solve the equation.

## What is the formula used to calculate speed?

The

**speed**of an object is how fast or slow it's moving. You can**calculate speed**using the**equation**'**speed**= distance/time'. Distance-time graphs illustrate how an object moves. They show how the distance moved from a starting point changes over time.6

## How do you calculate the momentum of an object?

**Momentum**

- An object which is moving has momentum.
- p = m • v.
- In a collision, a force acts upon an object for a given amount of time to change the object's velocity.
- Impulse = Momentum Change.
- F • t = mass • Delta v.
- F
_{1}= - F_{2} - t
_{1}= t_{2} - If A = - B.

## What is the formula for calculating momentum?

It's a term that describes a relationship between the

**mass**and velocity of an object, and we can see this when it is written in equation form,**p = mv**, where**p**is momentum, m is**mass**in kg and v is velocity in m/s. Because momentum is a vector quantity, this means it has both magnitude and**direction**.9

## What is the formula for work?

Whenever 'work' is done energy is transferred from one place to another. The amount of work done is expressed in the equation: work done =

**force**x**distance**. Power is a measure of how quickly work is being done. Power is expressed in the equation: power = work done / time taken.10

## Is weight is a force?

**Weight**is a

**force**caused by gravity. The

**weight**of an object is the gravitational

**force**between the object and the Earth. The more mass the object has the greater its

**weight**will be.

**Weight**is a

**force**, so it's measured in newtons.

11

## What is the formula of force?

The formula for force says force is equal to mass (m) multiplied by acceleration (a). If you have any two of the three variables, you can solve for the third. Force is measured in Newtons (N), mass in kilograms (kg), and acceleration in meters per

**second**squared ( m/s2 ).12

## What is the formula for acceleration?

Acceleration is the rate of change of

**velocity**of an object. where a is acceleration, v is the final**velocity**of the object, u is the initial**velocity**of the object and t is the time that has elapsed. This equation can be rearranged to give: v = u + at.13

## Is magnitude the same as force?

The

**magnitude**of the net**force**acting on an object is equal to the mass of the object multiplied by the acceleration of the object as shown in the formula below. If the net**force**acting on an object is zero, then the object is not accelerating and is in a state that we call equilibrium.14

## How do you find the acceleration?

Rearrange the equation F = ma to

**solve for acceleration**. You can change this formula around to**solve for acceleration**by dividing both sides by the mass, so: a = F/m. To find the**acceleration**, simply divide the force by the mass of the object being accelerated.15

## What is the formula for weight?

The weight of an object is defined as the force of gravity on the object and may be

**calculated**as the**mass**times the acceleration of gravity, w = mg. Since the weight is a force, its SI unit is the newton.16

## What is the force of a stationary object?

If the resultant

**force**acting on an**object**is not zero, a**stationary object**begins to accelerate in the same direction as the**force**. A moving**object**speeds up, slows down or changes direction. Acceleration depends on the**force**applied to an**object**and the**object's**mass.17

## What is the formula for calculating pressure?

By Steven Holzner.

**Pressure**and force are related, and so you can**calculate**one if you know the other by using the physics**equation**, P = F/A. Because**pressure**is force divided by area, its meter-kilogram-second (MKS) units are newtons per square meter, or N/m^{2}.18

## What is the formula to find the speed?

**Distance**Speed Time Formula. Speed is a measure of how quickly an object moves from one place to another. It is equal to the

**distance**traveled divided by the time. It is possible to find any of these three values using the other two.

## How do you calculate weight?

In physics the standard unit of

**weight**is Newton, and the standard unit of mass is kilogram. On Earth, a 1 kg object weighs 9.8 N, so to**find**the**weight**of an object in N simply multiply the mass by 9.8 N. Or, to**find**the mass in kg, divide the**weight**by 9.8 N.
