Enter the warp factor into the calculator below to calculate the velocity or warp speed of an object.

## Warp Speed Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the warp speed velocity of a spaceship.

*v*** = ***w*^{10/3}*c*

- Where v is the velocity (m/s)
- w is the warp factor
- c is the speed of light

This formula is derived from the technical manual outlined in the Star Trek next generations by Mike, Okuda.

## Warp Speed Example

How to calculate a warp speed?

**First, determine the warp factor.**The warp factor is a measure of the ratio of the speed of light based on the warp scale.

**Next, calculate the warp speed.**Calculate the velocity using the formula above.

## FAQ

**How fast is warp speed?**

Warp speed itself is not on specific speed. It’s a range of velocities based on the speed of light and the warp factor.
