Enter the total weight (lbs) and the total time (minutes) into the Pounds Per Minute Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Pounds Per Minute.

## Pounds Per Minute Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Pounds Per Minute.

PPM = W / T

Variables:

- PPM is the Pounds Per Minute (pounds/minute)
- W is the total weight (lbs)
- T is the total time (minutes)

To calculate pounds per minute, divide the total weight by the total time in minutes.

## How to Calculate Pounds Per Minute?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Pounds Per Minute.

- First, determine the total weight (lbs).
- Next, determine the total time (minutes).
- Next, gather the formula from above = PPM = W / T.
- Finally, calculate the Pounds Per Minute.
- 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 weight (lbs) = 300

total time (minutes) = 5

PPM = W / T** **= ?
