Newton’s Second law:
To size a stage properly the force must be known. If force is not known it must be calculated from this equation. The mass is the total mass of the customer payload plus the mass of the moving components of the stage. If the acceleration component is not known it must be calculated. Calculators are provided under the Acceleration tab for estimating the acceleration of a system. Once the force is determined, the duty cycle for all of the specific forces must be determined to calculate the RMS force, which is the average required force. The Force RMS tab provides the tools needed to determine the RMS Force of a motion profile.
Example |

Duty Cycle = 1 sec on, 3 sec off
Duty Cycle = 1/(1+3) = 1/4 Duty Cycle = 25% |
Force at 10% Duty Cycle = 1 lb X (1/10%)^{1/2}
Force at 10% Duty Cycle = 1 lb X 3.16 Force at 10% Duty Cycle = 3.16 lbs |
