## How do you find nominal interest rate compounded continuously?

Continuous Compounding

Using our formula from our Effective Annual Interest Rate Calculator, where i = e^r – 1 becomes e^r = i + 1. And, by definition ln(e^r) = r [1], we can solve for r to get the formula: r = ln(i + 1).

## How do you find the nominal rate?

How to Calculate the Nominal Rate of Return

- Subtract the original investment amount (or principal amount invested) from the current market value of the investment (or at the end of the investment period).
- Take the result from the numerator and divide it by the original investment amount.
