Enter the design load or pressure (N/m^2, Pa) and the operating/current pressure (N/m^2,Pa) into the Aquarium Safety Factor Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Aquarium Safety Factor.

## Aquarium Safety Factor Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Aquarium Safety Factor.

FS  = DL / OP

Variables:

• FS is the Aquarium Safety Factor ( )
• DL is the design load or pressure (N/m^2, Pa)
• OP is the operating/current pressure (N/m^2,Pa)

## How to Calculate Aquarium Safety Factor?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Aquarium Safety Factor.

1. First, determine the design load or pressure (N/m^2, Pa).
2. Next, determine the operating/current pressure (N/m^2,Pa).
3. Next, gather the formula from above = FS  = DL / OP.
4. Finally, calculate the Aquarium Safety Factor.
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.

design load or pressure (N/m^2, Pa) = 300

operating/current pressure (N/m^2,Pa) = 150

FS  = DL / OP = ?
