Circular Velocity

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

velocity circularCircular velocity, abbreviated as vc is the velocity at which an object moves around a circle with a given radius. The equation to calculate the circular velocity and calculator are below.

\(\large{ v_c = \frac { 2 \; \pi \; r }{ t  }   }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ v_c }\) = circular velocity

\(\large{ \pi }\) = Pi

\(\large{ r }\) = radius

\(\large{ t }\) = time

Solve for:

\(\large{ r = \frac { v_c \; t  }{ 2 \; \pi  }   }\)

\(\large{ t = \frac { 2 \; \pi \; r   } { v_c  }   }\)
