Belt Frequency Calculator

About Belt Frequency Calculator (Formula)

The belt frequency calculator is a tool used to calculate the frequency or speed of a belt drive system based on the number of teeth on the pulleys and the pitch diameter. It is commonly used in mechanical engineering and power transmission applications to determine the rotational speed of a belt-driven system.

The formula for calculating belt frequency is:

Belt Frequency = (Number of Teeth on Driven Pulley / Number of Teeth on Driving Pulley) × Rotational Speed of Driving Pulley

Where: Belt Frequency represents the frequency or speed of the belt drive system Number of Teeth on Driven Pulley is the number of teeth on the pulley connected to the driven component Number of Teeth on Driving Pulley is the number of teeth on the pulley connected to the driving component Rotational Speed of Driving Pulley is the rotational speed of the driving pulley, typically measured in revolutions per minute (RPM) or radians per second (rad/s)

By multiplying the ratio of the number of teeth on the driven pulley to the number of teeth on the driving pulley by the rotational speed of the driving pulley, the belt frequency or speed is calculated.

The belt frequency calculator is useful for designing and analyzing belt drive systems, ensuring compatibility and efficiency between the driving and driven components. It aids in determining the appropriate belt length, pulley sizes, and rotational speeds required for desired power transmission and system performance.
