If a chainsaw sprocket of 1.5" Radius is rotating at 4300 rpm, how many feet will any one chain tooth travel in 1 second?

Recall that Tangential velocity Vt = w*R, where omega w is the velocity of the sprocket in radians per second and R is radius of the sprocket.

Of course, we're going to lube the chain with a tacky 30 grade oil called, "Bar and Chain oil." smile

35.83repeating?(I forgot the repeating symbol and an to lazy to look it up.)

Edit that would be the linear speed though not the tip speed around the sprocket.

Edit 2 I did it the dumb way not the formula way.

Edit 3 I didn't do it right at all. 3377 ft per second.

so 3" is the diameter *pi *4300(rpm) / 12 (inches in feet)

seems way off but 3377ft?

To lazy for math, but whatever 50-60mph is in feet per second. Makes you think saw pants are a good idea!

The velocity of the chain is approximately equal to the tangential velocity of the sprocket.

Hint: First convert RPM to radians/s.

So in one second the tooth will have traveled X feet????

4300 rev/min x 2*pi radians/rev x 1 min/60 sec x 1.5 in x 1 ft/12 in = 56.28 ft/sec, or about 38 mph.

4300 RPM/60 seconds per minute = 71.66 revolutions per second.

The circumference of a circle = pi X Diameter or pi X 2 X Radius

Circumference of a 3 inch diameter circle is 3 X 3.14 = 9.42 inches

71.66 revolutions X 9.42 inches circumference = 675.0372 inches per second.

Divide by 12 to get feet per second.

675.0372/12 = 56.2531 feet per second

88 feet per second = 60 MPH


(56.2531 / 88) X 60 = 38.35 MPH

Sorry, didn't see the apostrophe, but yes you and Mr. Harmon and Jim were all correct, just trying to get everyone to answer the question of "how many feet of travel in 1 second?"

Any one tooth or chain link will travel 56.25 feet in any 1 second if the chain's linear velocity is 56.25 ft./sec. thumbsup

What's the trick here? Are you going to nitpick about how tall the teeth are, which would change the tangential velocity.
How long is the bar? What is the radius of the drive sprocket?

Am I biting on your hook?
