Enter the total amount of data transferred (MBs) and the total amount of time (min) into the Transfer Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Transfer Rate.

## Transfer Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Transfer Rate.

TRS = D / (T*60)
• Where TRS is the Transfer Rate (MB/s)
• D is the total amount of data transferred (MB)
• T is the total amount of time (min)

To calculate the transfer rate, divide the amount of data by the amount of time.

## How to Calculate Transfer Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Transfer Rate.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total amount of data transferred (MBs).
• The total amount of data transferred (MBs) is given as: 500.
2. Next, determine the total amount of time (min).
• The total amount of time (min) is provided as: 10.
3. Finally, calculate the Transfer Rate using the equation above:

TRS = D / (T*60)

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

TRS = 500 / (10*60) = .833 (MB/s)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total amount of data transferred (MBs) = 600

total amount of time (min) = 5
