# Circular Velocity

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Circular 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.

## circular velocity formula

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

### Where:

$$\large{ v_c }$$ = circular velocity

$$\large{ \pi }$$ = Pi

$$\large{ r }$$ = radius

$$\large{ t }$$ = time
