Angular velocity Pro Preview

We already know that we can set the velocity of the motor and the amount of time we want it to move. What we can't program with the known commands so far is how much we want the motor to turn. For the motor to turn at a specific amount of degrees, we need to use some math.

The speed of the motor is set as degrees per second and we can use this to calculate how much the motor will turn using the following formula:

S = V * T

S = The travelled distance (in our case the amount of degrees the motor has turned;

V = Velocity;

T = Time;
