Enter the number of pulses and the time (s) into the Pulse Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Pulse Rate. 

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:

  1. First, determine the number of pulses.
    • The number of pulses is given as: 75.
  2. Next, determine the time (s).
    • The time (s) is provided as: 30.
  3. 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) = ?
