**Moving Force Calculator**

Enter the values of mass, m_{(kg)}, acceleration due to gravity, g_{(m/s2)} and coefficient of friction to determine the value of moving force, MF_{(N)}.

**Moving Force Formula**

Moving force refers to the total force required to overcome friction and initiate motion of an object along a surface.

Moving force, MF_{(N)} in Newtons is calculated by multiplying the mass, m_{(kg)} in kilograms, acceleration due to gravity, g_{(m/s2) }in metres per second squared and coefficient of friction, u.

Moving force, MF_{(N)} = m_{(kg)} * g_{(m/s2)} * u

MF_{(N)} = moving force in Newtons, N.

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

g_{(m/s2)} = acceleration due to gravity in metres per second squared, m/s^{2} (9.81 m/s^{2} on

Earth)

u = coefficient of friction.

__Moving Force Calculation:__

**Calculate the moving force required to slide a 50 kg crate along a warehouse floor with a coefficient of friction of 0.4.**

**Given: **m_{(kg)} = 50kg, g_{(m/s2)} = 9.81m/s^{2}, u =0.4.

Moving force, MF_{(N)} = m_{(kg)} * g_{(m/s2)} * u

MF_{(N)} = 50 * 9.81 * 0.4

MF_{(N)} = 196N.

- Calculate the mass of an object that requires a moving force of 294 Newtons to slide on a surface with a coefficient of friction of 0.3, assuming standard Earth gravity.

**Given: **MF_{(N)} = 294N, g_{(m/s2)} = 9.81m/s^{2}, u =0.3.

Moving force, MF_{(N)} = m_{(kg)} * g_{(m/s2)} * u

m_{(kg)} = MF_{(N)} / g_{(m/s2)} * u

m_{(kg)} = 294 / 9.81 * 0.3

m_{(kg)} = 100kg.
