Enter the dielectric constant into the Velocity Factor Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Velocity Factor.

## Velocity Factor Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Velocity Factor.

VF = 1 / SQRT(k)

Variables:

• VF is the Velocity Factor ( )
• k is the dielectric constant

To calculate the velocity factor, divide 1 by the square root of the dielectric constant.

## How to Calculate Velocity Factor?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Velocity Factor.

1. First, determine the dielectric constant.
2. Next, gather the formula from above = VF = 1 / SQRT(k).
3. Finally, calculate the Velocity Factor.
4. 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.

dielectric constant = 2.53

VF = 1 / SQRT(k) = ?
