Enter the total calories burned per hour (cal/hr) and the total rowing time (s) into the Rowing Machine Distance Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Rowing Machine Distance. 

Rowing Machine Distance Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Rowing Machine Distance. 

Dr = [(C-300)/ 9.63]^1/3 * T

  • Where Dr is the Rowing Machine Distance (m)
  • C is the total calories burned per hour (cal/hr) 
  • T is the total rowing time (s) 

How to Calculate Rowing Machine Distance?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Rowing Machine Distance.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total calories burned per hour (cal/hr). 
    • The total calories burned per hour (cal/hr) is given as: 750.
  2. Next, determine the total rowing time (s). 
    • The total rowing time (s) is provided as: 120.
  3. Finally, calculate the Rowing Machine Distance using the equation above: 

Dr = [(C-300)/ 9.63]^1/3 * T

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

Dr = [(750-300)/ 9.63]^1/3 * 120 = 432.21 (m)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

total calories burned per hour (cal/hr) = 800

total rowing time (s) = 140

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. 

Dr = [(C-300)/ 9.63]^1/3 * T = ?
