## Belt Speed Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the belt speed of a conveyor system.

V = pi/2 * D * RPM /60

- Where V is the belt speed (distance/time)
- D is the diameter of the pulley (length)
- RPM is rotations per minute

To calculate a belt speed, multiply the diameter of the pulley by the RPM divided by 60, then multiply the result by the value of pi over 2.

## Belt Speed Definition

A belt speed is defined as the linear velocity of the belt on a single conveyor system with a given diameter.

## Example Problem

How to calculate belt speed?

**First, determine the diameter of the conveyor.**For this example, the belt is wrapped on a conveyor system that has a diameter of 50m.

**Next, determine the rotations per minute of the conveyor.**For this problem, the RPM is measured to be 15.

**Finally, calculate the belt speed.**Calculate the belt speed using the formula V = pi/2*D*RPM = 3.14159/2*50*15/60 = 19.634 m/s.

## FAQ

**How do you calculate conveyor speed? **

A conveyor speed, or in this case the linear belt speed, can be calculated using the formula pi/2*D*RPM/60. In this formula, D is diameter and RPM is the rotations per minute of the conveyor. The value is then divided by 60 to convert the speed into distance per second.
