## WPM to KPH Converter Calculator

WPM to KPH converter calculator is a simple yet powerful online tool which helps you to convert your typing speed from WPM to KPH.

WPM and KPH are both used for measuring typing speed. WPM is a more popular measuring method which is mainly used to know the real typing speed of a typist whereas KPH is mainly used to know the typing speed of data entry.

Using this free online conversion tool, you can easily convert your typing speed from words per minute to keystrokes per hour.

## What is WPM?

WPM stands for Words Per Minute and is the measure of the typing speed of a person. It generally tells us how many words a person can type in a minute.

For the purpose of calculating the typing speed in WPM, a standardized word of five characters or keystrokes is taken into account. For example, the phrase “I eat” is one word because it contains five characters whereas the phrase “Motivation’ is counted as two words.

## What is KPH?

KPH stands for Keystrokes Per Hour. It is also used to measure the typing speed of a person. It is a more precise metric than the WPM. It basically tells us how many keystrokes a person can type in an hour. Spaces are also treated as a keystroke.

For example, the phrase “How are you?” contains 12 keystrokes.

## How to Convert WPM to KPH?

To convert WPM to KPH, we first need to convert WPM to KPM.

Keystrokes Per MInute = Words Per Minute * 5

Now, to convert KPM to KPH, we need to multiply KPM by 60 because one hour contains 60 minutes.

KPH = KPM X 60 => Words Per Minute * 5 * 60

After doing the calculations, we will get:

KPH = WPM X 300

Example 1: Convert 25 WPM into KPH.

We have typing speed in WPM = 25

Using the conversion formula, KPH = WPM X 300, we get:

KPH = 25 X 300 = 7500

Therefore, 25 WPM = 7500 KPH.
