FPM vs feet per X nm

So, when I look at departure plates for planning my flghts it shows my climb rate in feet per X nm which depending on aircraft determines your FPM. This has been discussed elsewhere with the formulas but I found the attached table that many will find useful I think. I’ll look over it more later since I’m sitting at ATL waiting pax (which BTW, may be here a while longer, TS moving in, arrivals are in holding patterns and departures held at origin)

I did a quick search to see if posted before but didn’t see anything.

This link should work to a PDF file that’s a table for calculating your FPM based on departure plate.
