Barbell Track Force in exercises of gym

Hi Mr Brown,

My objective in using trackers is to analyze the data taken from barbell tracking in weightlifting exercises.
Lately I try to figure out how to calculate the force. But being a speech of video analysis and not that of a linear encoder flush the situation is different.

In your opinion, what would be the best formula for calculating the force on the y-axis during an exercise.

I await a response

Thank you
