## Pulse Rate Formula

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

PULSE = P / (T/60)

- Where PULSE is the Pulse Rate (pulses/min)
- P is the number of pulses
- T is the time (s)

To calculate the pulse rate, divide the number of pulses by the time.

## How to Calculate Pulse Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Pulse Rate.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the number of pulses.
- The number of pulses is given as: 75.

- Next, determine the time (s).
- The time (s) is provided as: 30.

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

PULSE = P / (T/60)

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

PULSE = 75 / (30/60) = 150 (pulses/min)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

number of pulses = 100

time (s) = 50

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

PULSE = P / (T/60)** = ?**
