With what speed does an average male walk up a stair?

I want to know what speed an average male walks up a stair with. I don't mean how fast he can do it but with which speed. Like 0.2 m/s (0.65 feet/s) maybe? Something like that? I need to know for a physics report.

If you need more details, each step is 15 (5.9") cm high and 10 (3.9") cm "deep". And the stair has 10 steps.

    I would guess that both males and females can do about 2 stairs/second. Given your 0.15m stair height, then, I'd guess around 0.3 m/s (or 1 ft/s). Anything near that should be in the arena.
