Enter the paddle distance (m) and the paddling time (s) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Paddling Speed. 

Paddling Speed Formula

PS = D / T


  • PS is the Paddling Speed (m/s)
  • D is the paddle distance (m)
  • T is the paddle time (s)

To calculate Paddling Speed, divide the distance by the paddling time.

How to Calculate Paddling Speed?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Paddling Speed.

  1. First, determine the paddle distance (m). 
  2. Next, determine the paddle time (s). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = PS = D / T.
  4. Finally, calculate the Paddling Speed.
  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.

paddle distance (m) = 89

paddle time (s) = 90
