## Upward Force Calculator

Enter the values of mass of the object, m(kg) and upward acceleration, au(m/s2) to determine the value of upward force, UF(N).

 Enter Mass of the Object: kg Enter Upward Acceleration: m/s2 Result – Upward Force: N

## Upward Force Formula

The upward force is the force acting against gravity to lift or support an object. It’s calculated based on the object’s mass and the acceleration upward (au), which can be due to an applied force.

Upward force, UF(N) in Newtons is equated by the product of mass of the object, m(kg) in kilograms and upward acceleration, au(m/s2) in metre per second squared.

Upward force, UF(N) =  m(kg) * au(m/s2)

UF(N) = upward force in Newtons, N.

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

au(m/s2)  = upward acceleration in metres per second squared, m/s2.

Upward Force Calculation:

1. Calculate the Upward Force Needed to Lift a 50 kg Object at an Acceleration of 2 m/s2.

Given: m(kg) = 50kg, au(m/s2)  = 2m/s2.
Upward force, UF(N) =  m(kg) * au(m/s2)

UF(N) = 50 * 2

UF(N) = 100N.

1. Assume you have an upward force of 200 Newtons and the upward acceleration is 4 m/s². Calculate the mass of the object.

Given: UF(N) =200N, au(m/s2)  = 4m/s2.

Upward force, UF(N) =  m(kg) * au(m/s2)

m(kg) = UF(N) / au(m/s2)

m(kg) = 200 / 4

m(kg) = 50kg.
