F=mv^2/r for v

### 2 Answers | Add Yours

To solve this equation for v, we need to move anything that isn't v to the other side of the equation.

`F={mv^2}/r` multiply by r

`rF=mv^2` divide by m

`{rF}/m=v^2` take sqrt of both sides

`sqrt{{rF}/m}=v`

**The solution of the equation for v is `v=sqrt{{rF}/m}` .**

F=mv^2/r

F*r/m=v^2

v=sqrrt(F*r/m)
