Enter the diameter of the tire into the calculator to determine the revolutions per mile of the bike or wheel.
Rev Per Mile Formula
The following formula is used to calculate the total revs per mile of a bike tire.
RevPM = 63,360 / D * 3.14159
- Where RevPM is the revolutions per mile
- D is the diameter of the tire in inches
Rev Per Mile Definition
Rev per mile is short for revolutions per mile and is a measure of the total number of revolutions it takes a wheel of a certain size to travel a mile.
Rev Per Mile Example
How to calculate a rev per mile?
- First, measure the tire diameter.
Measure the tire diameter in inches.
- Next, calculate the circumference.
Calculate the circumference by multiplying the diameter by pi.
- Finally, calculate the rev per mile.
Calculate the number of revolutions per mile by dividing 63,360 by the tire circumference.
The amount of revolutions it takes a bike to travel a mile depends on the size of the wheel. The larger the wheel the lower the revolutions.
