Enter the damped frequency of a second-order damping system into the calculator to determine the rise time.

Rise Time Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the rise time of a second-order system.

t = 2.09439 / wd 
  • Where t is the rise time
  • wd is the damped frequency (rad/s)

To calculate rise time, divide 2.09439 by the damped frequency.

Rise Time Definition

A rise time is defined as the time it takes for a damped signal to change from a low to high value.

Rise Time Example

How to calculate rise time?

  1. First, determine the damped frequency.

    Calculate the damped frequency.

  2. Finally, calculate the rise time.

    Calculate the rise time using the formula above.


What is a rise time?

The rise time is considered the total amount of time it takes for a signal to change from a low value to a high value. These are most often involved in electronics when describing voltage or current step functions.

What is a damped frequency?

A damped frequency is the frequency of an underdamped harmonic oscillator.
