Step by Step Calculation

Back to Top
Step 1 :  

An velocity of the object in a circular orbit about a given altitude of a planet or the other gravitating mass.


Formula:


Circular velocity :


v = 2Πr / T .


Radius :


r = vT / 2Π .


Time period :


T = 2Πr / v .



Step 2 :  

State the equation you plan to use and plug in the values.



Example Problems

  1. Find the circular velocity, a radius is 6 m and time period for 1 full interval is  45 s.


    Step 1 :  

    The given:


    Radius (r) = 6 m.


    Time period (T) = 45 s.


    Circular velocity (v)= ? m/s



    Step 2 :  

    Plug the values in the formula


    Circular velocity :


    v = 2Πr / T . Where Π = 3.142,


    v = ( 2 * 3.142 * 6 ) / 45 .


     



    Answer  :  

    v = 0.838 m/s



  2. Find the radius, a circular velocity 2.5 m/s at the object and the time period of half cycle is 35 s.


    Step 1 :  

    The given:


    Radius (r) = ? m.


    Time period (T) = 35 s.


    Circular velocity (v)= 2.5 m/s



    Step 2 :  

    Plug the values in the formula


    Radius :


    r = vT / 2Π .Where Π = 3.142,


    r = ( 2.5 * 35 ) / (2*3.142) .



    Answer  :  

    r = 13.926 m
