Centrifuge acceleration calculator (from rpm and diameter)

Calculate the acceleration from its rotational speed in RPM and its diameter using this online calculator – formula included.

TechOverflow calculators:
You can enter values with SI suffixes like 12.2m (equivalent to 0.012) or 14k (14000) or 32u (0.000032).
The results are calculated while you type and shown directly below the calculator, so there is no need to press return or click on a Calculate button. Just make sure that all inputs are green by entering valid values.



n[rps] = \frac{n[rpm]}{60\frac{s}{min}}a[m/s²] = 4\cdot\pi^2\cdot(\frac{d}{2})\cdot(n[rps])²a[g] = \frac{a[m/s²]}{9.80665\frac{m/s²}{g}}
