Enter the total number of turns and the total time (min) into the Turn Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Turn Rate. 

Turn Rate Formula

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

TUR = #T / dT

  • Where TUR is the Turn Rate (turns/minute)
  • #T is the total number of turns 
  • dT is the total time (min) 

How to Calculate Turn Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Turn Rate.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total number of turns. 
    • The total number of turns is given as: 500.
  2. Next, determine the total time (min). 
    • The total time (min) is provided as: 2.
  3. Finally, calculate the Turn Rate using the equation above: 

TUR = #T / dT

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

TUR = 500 / 2 = 250 (turns/minute)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total number of turns = 600

total time (min) = 3

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

TUR = #T / dT = ?
