The Speed of a Belt calculator computes the speed at which a linear length of belt travels around a pulley based on the diameter (D) of the pulley and the rotation rate (R).Belt
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Belt Speed (BS): The calculator computes the belt speed in feet per second. However, this can be automatically converted to other velocity units via the pull-down menu.
BS = (D •π • R)/(2π) = ½•D•RPM
