Put the values of the radius and time into the circular velocity calculator to find the value of the velocity of an object moving in a circular motion.

This online circular velocity calculator can calculate the value of the velocity of an object moving in an orbit of a circle, given that the values of time and radius of the orbit are known.

This calculator can also be used to calculate

## What is circular velocity?

Definition of circular velocity is:

“The velocity attained by an object while moving along the circumference of a circle.”

It is represented by *v* and its SI unit is *ms*^{-1}.

The equation for the calculation of the circular velocity is:

**v = 2πr/t**

Where *r* is radius and *t* is time to complete one circle.

## How to calculate circular velocity?

*Example:*

What is the circular velocity of a car completing a rotation about a circle of radius *7 meters* in *16 seconds?*

*Solution*:

**Step 1:** Identify the values.

r = 7 m

t = 16 seconds

**Step 2:** Use the values in the formula.

v = 2πr/t

v = 2π (7)/16

v = 2.75 ms^{-1}
