Enter the power output and the rower’s weight into the calculator to determine the C2 split time in rowing. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

C2 Split Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the C2 split time in rowing.

Split = 500 / (Power / Weight) ^ {(1/3)}


  • Split is the time it takes to row 500 meters (minutes) Power is the power output (watts) Weight is the rower’s weight (kg)

To calculate the C2 split time, divide 500 by the result of the power output divided by the rower’s weight, all raised to the power of one-third. This will give the time it takes to row 500 meters.

How to Calculate C2 Split?

The following steps outline how to calculate the C2 Split using the given formula:

  1. First, determine the power output (Power) in watts.
  2. Next, determine the rower’s weight (Weight) in kilograms.
  3. Next, calculate the value of (Power / Weight).
  4. Next, raise the value of (Power / Weight) to the power of (1/3).
  5. Finally, divide 500 by the result obtained in the previous step to calculate the C2 Split.
  6. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge:

Power (watts) = 800

Weight (kg) = 70
