# Circular Velocity Calculator

The online Circular Velocity Calculator tool helps to speed up the calculation and displays the result in a microsecond. The speed at which a body must travel to maintain an orbit near the edge of the earth's atmosphere. Circular Velocity is the name given to this speed.

### What is Circular Velocity?

In physics, circular motion is defined as an object moving around the circumference of a circle or rotating along its circular path. The object may be moving uniformly with a constant angular rate of rotation and speed, or it may be moving in a non-uniform manner with a variable rate of rotation.

Objects moving in circles have a speed equal to the distance travelled divided by the travel time. As a result, the circular velocity of an object is defined as its speed in a circular motion. The formula for circular velocity is: **v = 2πr/T**

Here,

- v = circular velocity
- r = Radius of the circular orbit
- T = Time period

### How is Circular Velocity Calculated?

The following is the formula for calculating circular velocity: **vc = 2πr / T**

- Where, r = radius of the circular orbit
- T = time period.

If you know the angular velocity, you can calculate the circular velocity as follows: **vc = ω r**

- Where, ω = angular velocity,
- r = radius of the circular path

### How Do I Use the Circular Velocity Calculator?

The following is how to use the circular velocity calculator:

- Step 1: Fill in the unknown's radius, time period, and x in the appropriate input fields.
- Step 2: To get the result, click the "Calculate the Unknown" button.
- Step 3: Finally, the output field will show the value of x.

### FAQs on Circular Velocity

**1. What is Circular Velocity?**

The velocity at which a body must travel to maintain an orbit near the edge of the earth's atmosphere. This velocity is called circular velocity.

**2. What is the circular velocity formula?**

The following is the formula for calculating circular velocity:

vc = 2πr / T

**3. Is it possible for velocity to be negative?**

A negative velocity object moves in the opposite direction. When an object slows down, its acceleration vector is in the opposite direction of its motion.

**4. Is it possible for the average velocity to be zero?**

The ratio of a body's total distance travelled to the total time interval required to cover that distance is known as average speed. Hence, the average velocity can be zero. The displacement of a car travelling in a circle is zero because the starting and ending points are the same.

**5. What is the circular motion velocity?**

The speed, mass, and radius are all constant in the simplest case. Consider a one-kilogram body moving in a one-metre radius circle at one-radian-per-second angular velocity. One metre per second is the speed. v2/r is the inward acceleration in metres per second.
