Enter the speed over ground (mph) and the radius of turn per minute (degrees/min) into the Wheel Over Point Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Wheel Over Point. 

Wheel Over Point Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Wheel Over Point.

WOP = v / R

Variables:

  • WOP is the Wheel Over Point (mph/degree)
  • v is the speed over ground (mph) 
  • R is the radius of turn per minute (degrees/min) 

How to Calculate Wheel Over Point?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Wheel Over Point.


  1. First, determine the speed over ground (mph). 
  2. Next, determine the radius of turn per minute (degrees/min). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = WOP = v / R.
  4. Finally, calculate the Wheel Over Point.
  5. 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.

speed over ground (mph) = 300

radius of turn per minute (degrees/min) = 2.5

WOP = v / R = ?
