Enter the article length (words) and the reading speed (words per minute) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Article Read Time.

## Article Read Time Formula

ART = AL / WPM

Variables:

- ART is the Article Read Time (minutes)
- AL is the article length (words)
- WPM is the reading speed (words per minute)

To calculate Article Read Time, divide the article length by the reading speed in words per minute.

## How to Calculate Article Read Time?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Article Read Time.

- First, determine the article length (words).
- Next, determine the reading speed (words per minute).
- Next, gather the formula from above = ART = AL / WPM.
- Finally, calculate the Article Read Time.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
