Enter the values of mass of the object, m_{(kg)}, change in velocity, (V_{f} – V_{i})_{(m/s)} and time, t_{(s)} to determine the value of average Force, F_{avg(N)}.

__Average Force Formula:__

Average force is a concept in physics that measures the constant force applied over a period of time to cause a change in an object’s momentum.

Average Force, F_{avg(N)} in Newtons, is calculated by multiplying the mass of the object, m_{(kg)} in kilograms by the change in velocity, (V_{f} – V_{i})_{(m/s)} in meters per second, over the time, t_{(s)} in seconds.

Average Force, F_{avg(N)} = m_{(kg)} * (V_{f} – V_{i})_{(m/s)} / t_{(s)}

F_{avg(N)} = average force in Newtons, N.

m_{(kg)} = mass of the object in kilogram, kg.

(V_{f} – V_{i})_{(m/s)} = change in velocity in metre per second, m/s.

t_{(s)} = time in second, s.

- Mass of the football 0.45 kg. Initial velocity 0 m/s (the ball is stationary). Final velocity 30 m/s (speed of the ball after the kick). Time of contact with the foot 0.05 s.

Given: m_{(kg)} = 0.45kg, (V_{f} – V_{i})_{(m/s)} = (30 – 0), t_{(s)} = 0.05s.

Average Force, F_{avg(N)} = m_{(kg)} * (V_{f} – V_{i})_{(m/s)} / t_{(s)}

F_{avg(N)} = 0.45 * (30 – 0) / 0.05

F_{avg(N)} = 270N.

- Suppose a car applies brakes and comes to a stop from a speed of 20m/s to 0m/s in 5 seconds. If the braking force applied is 1000 Newtons, what is the mass of the car?

Given: F_{avg(N)} = 1000N, (V_{f} – V_{i})_{(m/s)} = (0 – 20), t_{(s)} = 5s.

Average Force, F_{avg(N)} = m_{(kg)} * (V_{f} – V_{i})_{(m/s)} / t_{(s)}

m_{(kg)} = F_{avg(N)} * t_{(s)} / (V_{f} – V_{i})_{(m/s)}

m_{(kg)} = 1000 * 5 / -20

m_{(kg)} = -250kg
