# Force that will be created on the component

• chandran
In summary, force is a physical quantity that describes the interaction between two objects and can be created through various means such as pushing, pulling, or gravitational forces. It is measured in Newtons using a spring scale or by multiplying an object's mass by its acceleration. The force created on a component can be affected by factors like mass, acceleration, angle, and surface area, and its direction can be determined using a vector diagram. The force can be calculated using the formula F=ma or by dividing the change in momentum by the change in time.

a mass of 22 kg is dropped vertically from 180mm on a component. I know the final velocity while the hit takes place is 3.53m/sqsec. What is
the force that will be created on the component and to what duration the force lasts.

How much force does the mass exert on the componant? Wouldn't the force the componant exerted be equal and opposite, because its pushing back on the mass, to the magnitude of the force the componant exerts? As far as calculating the time I don't know.

The force that will be created on the component can be calculated using the formula F = ma, where F is the force, m is the mass, and a is the acceleration. In this case, the mass is 22 kg and the acceleration is the final velocity of 3.53m/s^2. Therefore, the force created on the component is 77.66 N (newtons).

As for the duration of the force, it will last for the duration of the impact between the mass and the component. This will depend on the material and structure of the component, as well as the velocity and angle at which the mass is dropped. It is important to consider the potential damage to the component from the force and to ensure that it can withstand it.

## 1. What is force and how is it created?

Force is a physical quantity that describes the interaction between two objects. Force can be created through various means, such as pushing, pulling, or applying pressure, and it can also be a result of gravity or electromagnetic forces.

## 2. How is force measured?

Force is measured in units of Newtons (N) using a device called a spring scale or a force meter. The force can also be calculated by multiplying an object's mass (in kilograms) by its acceleration (in meters per second squared).

## 3. What factors affect the force created on a component?

The force created on a component can be influenced by various factors, including the mass of the object, the acceleration of the object, the angle of the force, and the surface area of contact between the objects.

## 4. How can the direction of force be determined?

The direction of force can be determined using a vector diagram. The direction of the force is represented by an arrow, with the length of the arrow indicating the magnitude of the force and the direction of the arrow indicating the direction of the force.

## 5. How can the force created on a component be calculated?

The force created on a component can be calculated using the formula F=ma, where F is force (in Newtons), m is mass (in kilograms), and a is acceleration (in meters per second squared). Alternatively, the force can also be calculated by dividing the change in momentum by the change in time.
