Enter the total amount of distance traveled (in) and the total amount of time (min) into the Inches Per Second Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Inches Per Second. 

Inches Per Second Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Inches Per Second.

IPS = D / T / 60

Variables:

  • IPS is the Inches Per Second (in/s)
  • D is the total amount of distance traveled (in) 
  • T is the total amount of time (min) 

How to Calculate Inches Per Second?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Inches Per Second.


  1. First, determine the total amount of distance traveled (in). 
  2. Next, determine the total amount of time (min). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = IPS = D / T / 60.
  4. Finally, calculate the Inches Per Second.
  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 amount of distance traveled (in) = 500

total amount of time (min) = 30

IPS = D / T / 60 = ?
