Displacement Power

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Displacement power, abbreviated as P or P_d, is the amount of power required to displace an object a certain distance over time with a known force.  The calculator below determines what the required power is given the inputs on the shown equation.

Displacement power formula

\(\large{ P = \frac {F}{\delta} \; t }\) 


 Units English Metric
\(\large{ P }\) = power \(\large{\frac{ft-lbf}{sec}}\) \(\large{W}\) 
\(\large{ F }\) = force \(\large{ lbf }\) \(\large{ N }\) 
\(\large{ \delta }\)  (Greek symbol delta) = displacement \(\large{ ft }\) \(\large{ m }\)
\(\large{ t }\) = time \(\large{ sec }\) \(\large{ s }\)
