Circular Velocity

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Circular Velocity

Circular velocity is the velocity at which an object must move in order to keep a specific radius. 

Circular Velocity formula

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

Where:

\(v_c\) = circular velocity

\(r\) = radius

\(t\) = time

Solve for:

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

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