Enter the total number of pulses and the total distance (miles) into the Pulses Per Mile Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Pulses Per Mile.

## Pulses Per Mile Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Pulses Per Mile.

PPM = P / D

Variables:

- PPM is the Pulses Per Mile (pulses/mile)
- #P is the total number of pulses
- D is the total distance (miles)

To calculate the pulses per mile, divide the total number of pulses by the total distance.

## How to Calculate Pulses Per Mile?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Pulses Per Mile.

- First, determine the total number of pulses.
- Next, determine the total distance (miles).
- Next, gather the formula from above = PPM = #P / D.
- Finally, calculate the Pulses Per Mile.
- 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 number of pulses = 8000

total distance (miles) = 3

PPM = #P / D** **= ?
