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.

## FAQ

**What is an angular force?**
