# Applied Force Calculator, Formula, Applied Force Calculation

## Applied Force Calculator:

Enter the values of mass of the object, m(kg), acceleration due to gravity, g(m/s2) and frictional force, FF(N) to determine the value of  applied Force, AF(N).

 Enter Mass of the Object: kg Enter Frictional Force: N Result – Applied Force: N

## Applied Force Formula:

Applied Force (AF) is the force exerted on an object to cause it to move or accelerate.

Applied Force, AF(N) in Newtons is equated by subtracting the product of mass of the object, m(kg) in kilogram and acceleration due to gravity, g(m/s2) in metre per second squared from frictional force, FF(N) in Newtons.

Applied Force, AF(N) = m(kg) * g(m/s2) – FF(N)

AF(N) = applied force in Newtons, N.

m(kg) = mass of the object in metres, m.

g(m/s2) = acceleration due to gravity in metre per second squared, m/s2.

FF(N) = frictional force in Newtons, N.

### Applied Force Calculation:

#### 1. Calculate the applied force required to accelerate a 10 kg cart at 2m/s2 if the frictional force is 5N.

Given: m(kg) = 10kg,  g(m/s2) = 2m/s2,  FF(N) = 5N.

Applied Force, AF(N) = m(kg) * g(m/s2) – FF(N)

AF(N) = 10 * 2 – 5

AF(N) = 15N.

1. Assume you applied a force of 25N to accelerate a 5kg object at 4m/s2. Calculate the frictional force opposing the motion.

Given: m(kg) = 5kg,  g(m/s2) = 4m/s2,  AF(N) = 25N.

Applied Force, AF(N) = m(kg) * g(m/s2) – FF(N)

FF(N) = m(kg) * g(m/s2) – AF(N)

FF(N) = 5 * 4 – 25

FF(N) = -5N.
