About Pitch Line Velocity Calculator (Formula)
The Pitch Line Velocity Calculator is a tool used to calculate the pitch line velocity of a rotating object based on its diameter and angular velocity.
The formula used to calculate the pitch line velocity is:
Pitch Line Velocity = π * (Diameter/12) * (Angular Velocity/60)
In this formula, “Diameter” represents the diameter of the pitch in inches, and “Angular Velocity” represents the angular velocity of the object in revolutions per minute (RPM).
To calculate the pitch line velocity, multiply the diameter of the pitch by π and divide it by 12 to convert it from inches to feet. Then multiply this value by the angular velocity in RPM and divide it by 60 to convert it to seconds. The resulting value represents the pitch line velocity in feet per second (ft/s).
The Pitch Line Velocity Calculator provided here allows you to input the diameter of the pitch and the angular velocity. It will calculate the pitch line velocity for you. The result is displayed with a precision of two decimal places, indicating the pitch line velocity in ft/s.
This calculator is useful in various applications, such as mechanical engineering, automotive, and machinery, where it is important to determine the speed or velocity at the pitch line of rotating objects, such as gears, pulleys, or propellers.
