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

  1. Apr 24, 2009 #1
    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
