Calculate Angular and Linear Velocity


The calculator finds the angular and linear velocity of any object moving in circular form.
Number of Revolutions per Minute :
Radius in meter :

   
Angular Velocity (ω): radians/sec
Linear Velocity (LV): km/hr

Formula:

ω = θ/t radians/sec

LV = x/t km/hr

Where,

ω=Angular velocity,

LV=Linear velocity,

θ=Angl


The angular velocity applies to objects that are moving along a circular path, it is the object's angular displacement with respect to time. We can see the angular velocity in this example:
The linear velocity applies to an object that is moving in a straight line, it is the rate of change of object's position with respect to time, or we can say speed is the linear velocity. We can see the linear velocity in this example:
