Enter the energy flux and the entropy flux into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Alpha/Beta Ratio. 

Alpha/Beta Ratio Formula

α/βR =α/β


  • α/βR is the Alpha/Beta Ratio ()
  • α is the energy flux
  • β is the entropy flux

To calculate Alpha/Beta Ratio, divide the energy flux by the entropy flux.

How to Calculate Alpha/Beta Ratio?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Alpha/Beta Ratio.

  1. First, determine the energy flux. 
  2. Next, determine the entropy flux. 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = α/βR =α/β.
  4. Finally, calculate the Alpha/Beta Ratio.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

energy flux = 1

entropy flux = 2
