## Heating Rate Formula

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

HR = dT / t

- Where HR is the Heating Rate (F/min)
- dT is the total change in temperature (F)
- t is the total time (min)

To calculate the heating rate, divide the change in temperature by the change in time.

## How to Calculate Heating Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Heating Rate.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total change in temperature (F).
- The total change in temperature (F) is given as: 40.

- Next, determine the total time (min).
- The total time (min) is provided as: 20.

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

HR = dT / t

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

HR = 40 / 20 = 2 (F/min)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total change in temperature (F) = 60

total time (min) = 5

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

HR = dT / t** = ?**
