Enter the values of Diameter of the pitch d_{(inches)} & Angular velocity w_{(RPM)} to determine the value of Pitch Line Velocity PLV_{(ft/s)} .

__Pitch Line Velocity Formula:__

__Pitch Line Velocity Formula:__

The Pitch Line Velocity PLV_{(ft/s)} in feet per second is equal to the 3.141 value into multiply the Diameter of the pitch d_{(inches)} in inches is divided by the value of 12 into multiply the Angular velocity w_{(RPM)} in Rotation Per Minute and divided by the value of 60.

The Formula of Pitch Line Velocity can be writtern as,

PLV_{(ft/s)} = pi * ( d_{(inches)} / 12 ) * w_{(RPM)} / 60

Here,

PLV_{(ft/s)} = Pitch Line Velocity in feet per second

d_{(inches)} = Diameter of the pitch in inches

w_{(RPM)} = Angular velocity in Rotation Per Minute

__Example Problems for Pitch Line Velocity:__

__Example Problems for Pitch Line Velocity:__

1)Calculate the Pitch Line Velocity and given for Diameter of the pitch = 6inches , Angular velocity = 30RPM.

Answer

PLV = pi * ( d / 12 ) * w / 60

PLV = 3.141 * ( 6 / 12 ) * 30 / 60

PLV = 0.78ft/s.

2)Calculate the Angular velocity and given for Diameter of the pitch = 6inches , Pitch Line Velocity = 0.78ft/s.

Answer

PLV = pi * ( d / 12 ) * w / 60

0.78 = 3.141 * ( 6 / 12 ) * w / 60

w = 30RPM.
