Enter the total length of the belt (ft) and the number of rotations into the Belt Distance Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Belt Distance. 

Belt Distance Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Belt Distance. 

Dbelt = LB * R
  • Where Dbelt is the Belt Distance (ft)
  • LB is the total length of the belt (ft) 
  • #R is the number of rotations 

To calculate the belt distance, multiply the length of the belt by the number of rotations.

How to Calculate Belt Distance?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Belt Distance.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total length of the belt (ft).
    • The total length of the belt (ft) is given as: 30.
  2. Next, determine the number of rotations.
    • The number of rotations is provided as: 20.
  3. Finally, calculate the Belt Distance using the equation above: 

Dbelt = LB * #R

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

Dbelt = 30 * 20 =600 (ft)

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

total length of the belt (ft) = 60

number of rotations = 45

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. 

Dbelt = LB * #R = ?
