Enter the chainsaw diameter (in) and the chainsaw rotational speed (RPM) into the Chainsaw Chain Speed Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Chainsaw Chain Speed.

## Chainsaw Chain Speed Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Chainsaw Chain Speed.

**CCS = pi*D/12 * RPM**

Variables:

- CCS is the Chainsaw Chain Speed (ft/min)
- CCS is the chainsaw diameter (in)
- RPM is the chainsaw rotational speed (RPM)

## How to Calculate Chainsaw Chain Speed?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Chainsaw Chain Speed.

- First, determine the chainsaw diameter (in).
- Next, determine the chainsaw rotational speed (RPM).
- Next, gather the formula from above = CCS = pi*D/12 * RPM.
- Finally, calculate the Chainsaw Chain Speed.
- 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.

chainsaw diameter (in) = 5

chainsaw rotational speed (RPM) = 500

CCS = pi*D/12 * RPM** **= ?
