Enter the propagation velocity (m/s) and the pulse spacing (m) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Pulse Repetition Frequency.

## Pulse Repetition Frequency Formula

PRF = PV / PS

Variables:

- PRF is the Pulse Repetition Frequency (1/s)
- PV is the propagation velocity (m/s)
- PS is the pulse spacing (m)

To calculate Pulse Repetition Frequency, divide the propagation velocity by the pulse spacing.

## How to Calculate Pulse Repetition Frequency?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Pulse Repetition Frequency.

- First, determine the propagation velocity (m/s).
- Next, determine the pulse spacing (m).
- Next, gather the formula from above = PRF = PV / PS.
- Finally, calculate the Pulse Repetition Frequency.
- 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.

propagation velocity (m/s) = 478

pulse spacing (m) = 2
