Tangential Velocity Formula
When a body is moving in circular path at a distance r from its center its velocity at any instant will be directed tangentially. This is what we call tangential velocity. In simple words the linear velocity at any instant is its tangential velocity.
is the radius of circular path and $\omega$
is the angular velocity given as $\omega$
Hence the Tangential Velocity Formula
is given by
If time taken t
is only given then Tangential Velocity
is calculated using formula
Tangential velocity formula is useful in calculating the tangential velocity of any given body moving in a circular path. It is expressed in meter per second (m/s).
