Uniform Circular Motion Calculator

The Uniform Circular Motion Calculator calculator will calculate:

  1. Period of rotation in a uniform circular motion
  2. Frequency of rotation in a uniform circular motion
  3. Angular displacement in a uniform circular motion
  4. Angular velocity in a uniform circular motion
  5. Tangential velocity in a uniform circular motion
  6. Centripetal acceleration in a uniform circular motion

A positive number in the calculated result indicates an anticlockwise direction of rotation.
