Enter the mass, velocity, and radius into the calculator to determine the angular force acting on an object.
Angular Force Formula
The following formula is used to calculate an angular force.
F = m*v^2 / r
- Where F is the force (N)
- m is the mass (kg)
- v is the velocity (m/s)
- r is the radius (m)
Angular Force Definition
An angular force is the force required to keep a rotating object at a constant tangential velocity.
Angular Force Example
How to calculate angular force?
- First, determine the mass.
Measure or calculate the mass of the object.
- Next, determine the radius
Measure the radius of rotation.
- Next, determine the velocity.
Calculate the tangential velocity.
- Finally, calculate the angular force.
Calculate angular force using the equation above.
Is angular speed centripetal force?
No, angular speed is not centripetal force. A centripetal force is what causes an object to have an angular speed.
An angular force is a force that keeps a rotating object moving at a constant velocity in rotational motion.
