# Braking Force Calculation, Formula, Braking Force Calculator

Braking Force Calculator:

Enter the values of mass of the object, m(kg), velocity of the object, v(m/s) and stopping distance, d(m) to determine the value of braking force, F(N).

 Enter Mass of the Object kg Enter Velocity of the Object: m/s Enter Stopping Distance: m Result – Braking Force: N

Braking Force Formula:

The braking force formula is used to determine the force required to bring a moving object to a stop over a certain distance.

Braking Force, F(N), in Newton is calculated by dividing the product of 0.5, mass of the object, m(kg) in kilograms and velocity of the object, v(m/s) in meters per second by stopping distance, d(m) in metres.

Braking Force, F(N) = 0.5 * m(kg) * v2(m/s) / d(m)

F(N) = braking force in Newton, N.

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

v(m/s) = velocity of the object in metre per second, m/s.

d(m) = stopping distance in metre, m.

Braking Force Calculation:

1. Calculate the braking force required to stop a car weighing 1000kg travelling at 20m/s over a distance of 50m.

Given: m(kg) = 1000kg, v(m/s) = 20m/s, d(m) = 50m.

Braking Force, F(N) = 0.5 * m(kg) * v2(m/s) / d(m)

F(N) = 0.5 * 1000 * 202 / 50

F(N) = 4000N.

1. Calculate the mass of an object that requires a braking force of 800N to stop from a velocity of 20m/s over a distance of 50m.

Given: F(N) =  800N, v(m/s) = 20m/s, d(m) = 50m.

Braking Force, F(N) = 0.5 * m(kg) * v2(m/s) / d(m)

m(kg) = F(N) * d(m) / 0.5 * v2(m/s)

m(kg) = 800 * 50 / 0.5 * 202

m(kg) = 200kg.
