# How to calculate the work from force (acceleration and mass)

Hi,

I would like to calculate the used energy with the accelerometer. Does anyone know how to calculate the used energy (work) from acceleration and body mass?

f=ma
v=at
d=vt
w=fd

Remember, work is the area under the force/distance curve.

If force is constant with distance, then the force/distance curve is actually a strait line, so the work is

W=FD

Also, remember that

F=ma
