Enter the distance and time into the calculator to determine the speed in miles per minute. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Mile Per Minute Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the speed in miles per minute.

MPM = D / T


  • MPM is the speed in miles per minute (mi/min) D is the distance covered (miles) T is the time taken (minutes)

To calculate the speed in miles per minute, divide the distance covered by the time taken. The result will be the speed in miles per minute.

What is a Mile Per Minute?

A Mile Per Minute is a unit of speed typically used in transportation or motion. It measures the number of miles traveled in one minute. For example, if a car is moving at a speed of one mile per minute, it means that the car will cover a distance of one mile if it continues to move at the same speed for a full minute. This unit is often used in aviation and rail transport.

How to Calculate Mile Per Minute?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Mile Per Minute (MPM) using the formula MPM = D / T.

  1. First, determine the distance covered (D) in miles.
  2. Next, determine the time taken (T) in minutes.
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = MPM = D / T.
  4. Finally, calculate the Mile Per Minute (MPM).
  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.

Distance covered (D) = 60 miles

Time taken (T) = 30 minutes
