Force & Work Equations


Name: Period:________

Date:________________________

Force= Mass X Acceleration Force = ________kilograms X _________m/s2 Force= ________________Newtons (This is the amount of force required to move the vest up the steps)

Work= Force X Distance Work =________newtons X __________meters Work=__________Joules (This is the amount of work required to move the vest us the steps)

Force Required up ramp vs. deadlift Force= Work/Distance of Deadlift Force=___________Joules/________Met ers Force=_____________Newtons

Force= Work/Distance of Ramp Force=___________Joules/________Mete rs Force=_____________Newtons

Power Equations Power= Work/Time Power=___________Joules/________Se conds Power=_____________Watts
