## What is Foot Pounds of Energy Calculator?

The Foot Pounds of Energy Calculator can be used to calculate the energy of a bullet by calculating its mass and speed. To calculate the energy in feet-pounds, this calculator uses the formula E=M (g)*BS 2/450.437.

## Formula

The formula for the Foot Pounds of Energy Calculator uses is:

**E = M(g), * BS2 / 450.437**

E is the energy per foot-pounds, M the mass of the bullet, and BS the bullet’s speed in feet per hour.

Let’s take, for example, a bullet weighing 150 grains with a speed of 2800 ft/minute. The formula can be used to calculate the energy of the bullet.

E = 150 * 2800^2 / 450,437 E = 1752.42 foot-pounds

The energy of a bullet is therefore 1752.42 feet-pounds.

## How to Calculate

The Foot Pounds of Energy Calculator requires you to know the mass of the bullet, in grains, and the speed of your bullet, in feet per hour. Simply enter these values into the calculator, and then click the “Calculate” button. To calculate the energy of the bullet, the calculator uses the formula E=M (g)*BS 2/450.437.
