The Work of Frictional Force Calculator is provided in support of our Physics Tutorials on Work, Energy and Motion which explores Motion, the different types of energy, kinetic energy, gravitational potential energy, elastic potential energy. power and efficiency with practical working examples and formula. A list of the supporting Work and Energy Physics Tutorials is available at the bottom of this page. This calculator will calculate:

- Frictional force between a moving object and the ground
- Work done by this frictional force against motion

Frictional Force (h) N | |

Work of Frictional Force (W_{f}) J |

**Note:** In horizontal motion, θ = 00, so cos θ = cos 00 = 1. This is the reason why the angle θ does not appear in most cases when discussing friction.

Please note that the formula for each calculation along with detailed calculations is shown further below this page. As you enter the specific factors of each work of frictional force calcualtion, the Work of Frictional Force Calculator will automatically calculate the results and update the formula elements with each element of the force calculation. You can then email or print this work of frictional force calculation as required for later use.
