Hi 👋

I have a question 🙋‍♀️ that’s needs help

Can I calculate the following ?

1. A person slams a door gate
2. Calculate the force given the height and weight of a person , and the area of the door gate

3. How to calculate the decibel produced by slamming the door gate ?

1) Is this a swinging door, or a sliding gate?
2) Are you asking the force needed to push the door closed, or the force on the supporting structure when it slams closed?
3) There is no good way to calculate door slamming noise level. Slam some doors and observe the differences in noise level. There are just too many unknowns to make this calculation.

I see that you found this thread: https://www.physicsforums.com/threa...-door-slam-force-formula.981233/#post-6268600. Study it carefully because everything in there applies directly to your questions.
