radius [m]

radius [m]

meters per second [m/s]

m/s

Assume an object (or point) attached to a rotating wheel. The angular velocity of the wheel is defined by \( \omega \) expressed in \( rad.s^{-1} \). This also means that the wheel rotates from \( \omega \) radians during one second. During that same second, the attached object (or point) travels a distance of \(r \times \omega \). It implies that the speed of the object is also equal to \(r \times \omega \). The conversion can be done thanks to the following formula:

$$ v=r\omega $$

and *vice-versa*:

$$ \omega=\frac{v}{r} $$

If the previous demonstration did not convince you. You can extend the formula that convert angle to distance :

$$ \alpha = \dfrac{L}{r} $$

by replacing

- the length \(L\) by the linear velocity \(v\)
- the angle \(\alpha\) by the angular velocity \( \omega \)
