For a robot to do a turn first the "turn distance" and then the "rotations" must be calculated.
Equation/Formula
Turn degrees
=
Turn Dist
360 degrees
Turn Circle Cir
Turn robot 10 degrees:
10 degrees
=
Turn Dist
360 degrees
75.61cm
(Above is aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa)
Divide top by bottom on the left:
0.028
=
Turn Dist
75.61
Multiply both sides by 75.61cm
2.10 cm
= Turn Distance
(Above is bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb)
Equation/Formula
Distance = Wheel Cir X Rotations
2.10 cm = 17.58 cm x Rotations
Divide both sides by 17.58 cm
(Above is ccccccccccccccccccccc)
0.119
= Rotations
(Above is dddddddddddddddddd)
Calculate a turn for 80
80 degrees
=
Turn Distance
360 degrees
75.61 cm
On the left divide the top by the bottom.
0.2222
=
Turn Distance
75.61 cm
Multiply both sides by 75.61cm
16.80 cm
= Turn Distance
Distance = Wheel Cir X Rotations
16.80 cm = 17.58 cm X Rotations
Divide both sides by 17.58 cm
0.9556
= Rotations
