Enter the total number of breaths and the amount of time (minutes) into the Breath Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Breath Rate.

## Breath Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Breath Rate.

BRR = B / T

- Where BRR is the Breath Rate (breaths/min)
- #B is the total number of breaths
- T is the amount of time (minutes)

To calculate the breathing rate, divide the number of breaths by the amount of time.

## How to Calculate Breath Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Breath Rate.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total number of breaths.
- The total number of breaths is given as: 300.

- Next, determine the amount of time (minutes).
- The amount of time (minutes) is provided as: 10.

- Finally, calculate the Breath Rate using the equation above:

BRR = #B / T

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

BRR = 300 / 10 = 30.00 (breaths/min)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total number of breaths = 600

amount of time (minutes) = 10

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

BRR = #B / T** = ?**
