## About Cost Per Hour Calculator (Formula)

A Cost Per Hour Calculator is a tool used in various industries to estimate the cost incurred per unit of time for a specific activity or resource. This calculation is essential for budgeting, project planning, and financial analysis. The formula used to calculate the cost per hour involves the total cost associated with the activity or resource and the number of hours during which the activity or resource is utilized.

The formula for calculating Cost Per Hour (CPH) using the total cost (C) and the number of hours (H) is:

Cost Per Hour (CPH) = Total Cost (C) / Number of Hours (H)

Where:

• Cost Per Hour (CPH) is the estimated cost incurred per hour for the activity or resource, typically measured in currency units (e.g., US Dollars, Euros, etc.).
• Total Cost (C) is the total expense associated with the activity or resource.
• Number of Hours (H) is the total number of hours during which the activity or resource is utilized.

Using the Cost Per Hour Calculator involves these steps:

1. Input: Enter the total cost and the number of hours into the calculator.
2. Calculation: The calculator applies the formula to estimate the cost per hour.
3. Output: The calculator displays the calculated cost per hour in currency units.

This tool is particularly useful for businesses, contractors, and individuals who want to determine the cost efficiency of various activities or resources over time.

For example, if the total cost of a project is \$2,000 and the project takes 40 hours to complete, the Cost Per Hour Calculator will estimate the cost per hour of the project.
