First is important to note that RTO and RPO are most often defined based on a scenario evaluation, instead of calculated, because calculating them can become very complex and time-consuming.

Considering that, RTO (Recovery Time Objective) is defined based on how fast you want to resume your operations after a disruption, while RPO (Recovery Point Objective) is defined based on how much data you can afford to lose due to a disruption.

For example, if an application has an RTO of 1 day and an RPO of 4 hours, it means that this application can be recovered (resume normal operation) in one day, but the information from the last 4 hours before the interruption occurred will be lost.
