## What is a WPM to CPM Converter?

WPM and CPM are typing units used to find the typing speed of a person. WPM which stands for Words Per Minute is the measure of how many words a person can type in a minute. For example, if a person types 72 words in a minute, then his typing speed will be 72 WPM.

For typing purposes, a word is standardized to five characters or Keystrokes (including spaces and punctuations). For example, “I see” counts as one words whereas “Playground” is counted as two words.

Similarly, CPM stands for Characters Per Minute is the measure of how many characters (including spaces and punctuations) a person can type in a minute. For example, “I see” will be counted as five characters.

**1 Word = 5 Characters**

## How to Convert WPM to CPM?

For the measurement of typing speed, a word is standardized to five characters or keystrokes. This also includes spaces, symbols, and punctuations. Therefore, to convert units from WPM to CPM, you’ll need to multiply the WPM value by 5.

**CPM = WPM x 5**

## Example

**Example:** Convert 45 WPM into CPM.

WPM = 45

Using the formula, CPM = WPM x 5, we’ll get:

CPM = 45 x 5 = 225

Thus, 45 Words Per Minute is equal to 225 Characters Per Minute.
