## Syllables Per Second Formula

SPS = WPM / 60 * SPW

Variables:

- SPS is the Syllables Per Second (syllables/sec)
- WPM is the average words per minute (wpm)
- SPW is the average syllables per word

To calculate Syllables Per Second, divide the average words per minute by 60, then multiply by the average syllables per word.

## How to Calculate Syllables Per Second?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Syllables Per Second.

- First, determine the average words per minute (wpm).
- Next, determine the average syllables per word.
- Next, gather the formula from above = SPS = WPM / 60 * SPW.
- Finally, calculate the Syllables Per Second.
- 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.

average words per minute (wpm) = 200

average syllables per word = 2.5
