Calculating Synchronous Belt Speed

For linear belt applications, it is often desirable to determine belt speed. The speed depends on both the sprocket pitch diameter and rpm.  It is calculated as follows:

S = (pd x rpm)/3.82

      S  is the belt speed in feet/minute
      pd is the sprocket pitch diameter in inches
      rpm is the sprocket speed
