Displacement Power

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Displacement power 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

 $$\large{ P = \frac {F}{\delta} \; t }$$

Where:

$$\large{ P }$$ = power

$$\large{ F }$$ = force

$$\large{ \delta }$$  (Greek symbol delta) = displacement

$$\large{ t }$$ = time

Solve for:

$$\large{ F = \frac {P \; t}{\delta} }$$

$$\large{ \delta = \frac {P \; t}{f} }$$

$$\large{ t = \frac {F \; \delta}{P} }$$
