This is a converter for wind measurements, which are either available with values for
the direction and the speed or with values for the vectors. Type the pair of values
into the fields, behind which you find the suitable description.
Click on the corresponding button and read the results in the other
fields. Use the "delete" button to delete your calculation.
Examples: What is the size of the wind vectors of north easterly wind
with a wind speed of 4 m/s ? Type "45" into the field for the wind direction (degrees)
and "4" into the field for the wind speed. Click on the upper "calculate" button behind
the wind direction in degrees and read the results (u = -2.8284 m/s, v = -2.8284 m/s)
What is the wind direction and wind speed of vectors of
u = 3 m/s, v = -3 m/s ? Type "3" into the field for u ad "-3" into the field for v.
Click on the lower "calculate" button and read the results (northwesterly wind,
315 degree, 4.2426 m/s windspeed)
Hint: In cases when the wind speed is not available in m/s you may type values
in other units. However, the vectors will be calculated in these units also. Alternatively
you may convert the wind speeds with the speed converter.
- All results have been rounded to 5 significant digits.
- Large and small numbers are written exponentially. As example
2.3e5 = 2.3⋅105 = 230000 or
4.5e-5 = 4.5⋅10-5 = 0.000045.
- There is no warranty for the conversion. Cactus2000 is not
responsible for damage of any kind caused by wrong results.
- Please send an email if you have suggestions or if you would like to see more
conversions to be included.
