## 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)

To calculate the aquarium safety factor, divide the design load by the current operating load.

## How to Calculate Aquarium Safety Factor?

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

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