Enter the total number of words spoken and the total time (min) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Conversation Rate. 

Conversation Rate Formula



  • CNVR is the Conversation Rate (words/min)
  • WS is the total number of words spoken
  • T is the total time (min)

To calculate the Conversation Rate, divide the number of words spoken by the total time.

How to Calculate Conversation Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Conversation Rate.

  • First, determine the total number of words spoken. 
  • Next, determine the total time (min). 
  • Next, gather the formula from above = CNVR = WS / T.
  • Finally, calculate the Conversation Rate.
  • 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.

total number of words spoken = 7000

total time (min) = 20
