Enter the volume of the room (ft^3) and the total area of absorption (sabins) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Reverberation Time.

## Reverberation Time Formula

RT = .049 * (V/A)

Variables:

- RT is the Reverberation Time (sec)
- V is the volume of the room (ft^3)
- A is the total area of absorption (sabins)

To calculate Reverberation Time, divide the volume of the room by the total area of absorption, then multiply by .049.

## How to Calculate Reverberation Time?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Reverberation Time.

- First, determine the volume of the room (ft^3).
- Next, determine the total area of absorption (sabins).
- Next, gather the formula from above = RT = .049 * (V/A).
- Finally, calculate the Reverberation Time.
- 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.

the volume of the room (ft^3) = 500

the total area of absorption (sabins) = 7.5
