Mass with force at angle
Application of
Newton's second law
to a single mass.
An applied force F=
N at an angle of
degrees is opposed by friction with friction coefficient mu =
. If it acts on mass m=
kg then the normal force is
N and the frictional resistance force is
N. The horizontal component of the applied force is
N and the net force is =
N. Newton's second law becomes:
Net force
=
mass
x
acceleration
Net force =
N =
kg x
m/s²
You may edit any of the data. When finished with data entry, click on the quantity you desire to calculate in the formula above. Quantities will not be forced to be consistent until you click on the desired quantity.
In U.S. common units this becomes:
Net force =
lb =
slug x
ft/s²
In this system the weight on the earth's surface is
lbs.
