# How to Calculate and Solve for the Reaction at the Outer Wheel of a Vehicle moving along a Level Circular Path | Nickzom Calculator

The image represents a reaction at the outer wheel of a vehicle moving along a level circular path. To calculate the reaction, six essential parameters are needed and these parameters are the Mass of the Vechicle (m), Acceleration due to Gravity (g), Velocity of the Vehicle (v), Height of Centre of Gravity of the Vehicle from the Ground Level (h), Radius of Circular Path (r) and Half of the Distance between the Centre Lines of the Wheel (a).

The formula for calculating the reaction at the outer wheel of a vehicle moving along a level circular path:

RBÂ =Â mg / 2[1 +Â vÂ²h/gra]

Where;
RBÂ = Reaction at the Outer Wheel of a Vehicle moving along a Level Circular Path
m = Mass of the Vechicle
g = Acceleration due to Gravity
v = Velocity of the Vehicle
h = Height of Centre of Gravity of the Vehicle from Ground Level
r = Radius of Circular Path
a = Half of the Distance between the Centre Lines of the Wheel

##### Let’s solve an example;

Find the reaction when the Mass of the Vechicle (m) is 12, Acceleration due to Gravity (g) is 9.8, Velocity of the Vehicle (v) is 28, Height of Centre of Gravity of the Vehicle from Ground Level (h) is 16, Radius of Circular Path (r) is 8 and Half of the Distance between the Centre Lines of the Wheel (a) is 4.

This implies that;
m = Mass of the Vechicle = 12
g = Acceleration due to Gravity = 9.8
v = Velocity of the Vehicle = 28
h = Height of Centre of Gravity of the Vehicle from Ground Level = 16
r = Radius of Circular Path = 8
a = Half of the Distance between the Centre Lines of the Wheel = 4

RBÂ =Â mg / 2[1 +Â vÂ²h/gra]
RBÂ =Â 12 x 9.8 / 2[1 +Â 28Â² x 16/9.8 x 8 x 4]
That is, RBÂ =Â 117.60 / 2[1 +Â 784 x 16/313.6]
RBÂ =Â 58.80[1 +Â 40]
RBÂ =Â 58.80[41]
So, RBÂ =Â 58.80[41]
RB = 2410.8

Therefore, the reaction of the outer wheel of a vehicle moving along a level circular pathÂ is 2410.8 N.
