**Lateral Force Calculator**

Enter the values of mass of the object, m_{(kg)} and lateral acceleration, LA_{(m/s2)} to determine the value of lateral force, LF_{(N)}.

**Lateral Force Formula**

Lateral force refers to the force applied perpendicular to the main direction of an object’s motion or intended motion.

Lateral force, LF_{(N)} in Newtons is equated by the product of mass of the object, m_{(kg)} in kilograms and lateral acceleration, LA_{(m/s2)} in metres per second squared.

Lateral force, LF_{(N)} = m_{(kg)} * LA_{(m/s2)}

LF_{(N)} = lateral force in Newtons, N.

m_{(kg)} = mass in kilograms, kg.

LA_{(m/s2)} = lateral acceleration in metres per second squared, m/s^{2}.

__Lateral Force Calculation:__

- Calculate the lateral force on a car with a mass of 1500 kg, making a turn at a lateral acceleration of 2 m/s
^{2}.

Given: m_{(kg)} = 1500kg, LA_{(m/s2)} = 2m/s^{2}.

Lateral force, LF_{(N)} = m_{(kg)} * LA_{(m/s2)}

LF_{(N)} = 1500 * 2

LF_{(N)} = 3000N.

- Assuming we have a lateral force of 4000 N acting on an object with a mass of 2000 kg, find the lateral acceleration.

Given: m_{(kg)} = 2000kg, LF_{(N)} = 4000N.

Lateral force, LF_{(N)} = m_{(kg)} * LA_{(m/s2)}

LA_{(m/s2)} = LF_{(N)} / m_{(kg)}

LA_{(m/s2)} = 4000 / 2000

LA_{(m/s2)} = 2m/s^{2}.
