Enter the Tension (N), the mass (kg), and the length (m) into the Belt Tension Frequency Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Belt Tension Frequency. 

Belt Tension Frequency Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Belt Tension Frequency. 

f = SQRT ( T / (4*m*L^2))


  • f is the Belt Tension Frequency (hz)
  • T is the Tension (N) 
  • m is the mass (kg) 
  • L is the length (m) 

How to Calculate Belt Tension Frequency?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Belt Tension Frequency.

  1. First, determine the Tension (N).
  2. Next, determine the mass (kg). 
  3. Next, determine the length (m). 
  4. Next, gather the formula from above = f = SQRT ( T / (4*m*L^2)).
  5. Finally, calculate the Belt Tension Frequency.
  6. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above. 

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

Tension (N) = 1519

mass (kg) = 50

length (m) = 2

f = SQRT ( T / (4*m*L^2)) =  ?
