## Application Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Application Rate.

APP = G / A

- Where APP is the Application Rate (gallons/acre)
- G is the total amount of gallons used
- A is the total acres covered

To calculate an application rate, divide the total amount of gallons used by the total acres covered.

## How to Calculate Application Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Application Rate.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total amount of gallons used.
- The total amount of gallons used is given as: 30.

- Next, determine the total acres covered.
- The total acres covered is provided as: 10.

- Finally, calculate the Application Rate using the equation above:

APP = G / A

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

APP = 30 / 10 = 3.00 (gallons/acre)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total amount of gallons used = 40

total acres covered = 20

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

APP = G / A** = ?**
