FAQ

What is Rate of Climb?
The Rate of Climb for an aircraft is defined as the product of the velocity of aircraft and sine of flight path angle and is represented as R/C=v*sin(θ) or Rate of Climb=Velocity*sin(Flight path angle). Velocity, in physics, is a vector quantity (it has both magnitude and direction), and is the time rate of change of position (of an object). and Flight path angle is defined as the angle between horizontal and the flight velocity vector, which describes whether the aircraft is climbing or descending.
How to calculate Rate of Climb?
The Rate of Climb for an aircraft is defined as the product of the velocity of aircraft and sine of flight path angle is calculated using Rate of Climb=Velocity*sin(Flight path angle). To calculate Rate of Climb, you need Velocity (v) and Flight path angle (θ). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Velocity and Flight path angle and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
How many ways are there to calculate Rate of Climb?
In this formula, Rate of Climb uses Velocity and Flight path angle. We can use 1 other way(s) to calculate the same, which is/are as follows -
  • Rate of Climb=Excess Power/Weight
