Enter the total distance covered and the total number of strokes into the calculator to determine the Distance per Stroke. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Dps Rowing Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Distance per Stroke (Dps) in rowing.

Dps = D / S


  • Dps is the Distance per Stroke (meters) D is the total distance covered (meters) S is the total number of strokes

To calculate the Distance per Stroke, divide the total distance covered by the total number of strokes. This will give you the average distance covered per stroke.

What is a Dps Rowing?

Dps Rowing refers to a specific technique used in the sport of rowing. DPS stands for “Distance Per Stroke,” which measures how far the boat moves forward with each stroke taken by the rower. This technique emphasizes efficiency and power, with the goal of maximizing the distance covered while minimizing the energy expended. It is a critical aspect of competitive rowing, as it can significantly impact a team’s speed and endurance during a race.

How to Calculate Dps Rowing?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Distance per Stroke (Dps) for a rowing exercise.

  1. First, determine the total distance covered (D) in meters.
  2. Next, determine the total number of strokes (S).
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = Dps = D / S.
  4. Finally, calculate the Distance per Stroke (Dps).
  5. 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 distance covered (D) = 500 meters

Total number of strokes (S) = 100 strokes
