## Snub Force Formula:

The snub force formula helps calculate the total force exerted on a snubbing unit during operations, incorporating the weights and frictions involved.

Snub Force, SF(N) in Newtons, is the sum of the weight force, WF(N) in Newtons plus the friction force, FF(N) in Newtons minus the buoyancy weight, BW(N) in Newtons.

Snub Force, SF(N) = WF(N) + FF(N) – BW(N)

SF(N) = snub force in Newtons, N.

WF(N) = weight force in Newtons, N.

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

BW(N) = buoyancy weight in Newtons, N.

### Snub Force Calculation:

1. A snubbing unit is handling a pipe that exerts a weight force of 10,000N, with a calculated friction force of 1,000N, and the buoyancy weight effect reduces the overall weight by 2,000N. Calculate the snub force required.

Given: WF(N) = 10000N, FF(N) = 1000N, BW(N) = 2000N.

Snub Force, SF(N) = WF(N) + FF(N) – BW(N)

SF(N) = 10000 + 1000 – 2000

SF(N) = 9000N.

1. A snub force (SF) of 8,000N, a weight force (WF) of 12,000N, and a friction force (FF) of 1,500N, calculate the buoyancy weight (BW).

Given: WF(N) = 12000N, FF(N) = 1500N, SF(N) = 8000N.

Snub Force, SF(N) = WF(N) + FF(N) – BW(N)

BW(N) = 12000 + 1500 – 8000

BW(N) = 5500N.
