## Aviation Load Factor Formula

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

LF = L / W

Variables:

- LF is the Load Factor ( )
- L is the total aircraft lift (N)
- W is the total aircraft weight (N)

To calculate the aviation load factor, divide the aircraft lift by the aircraft weight.

## How to Calculate Aviation Load Factor?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Load Factor.

- First, determine the total aircraft lift (N).
- Next, determine the total aircraft weight (N).
- Next, gather the formula from above = LF = L / W.
- Finally, calculate the Load 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.

total aircraft lift (N) = 5000

total aircraft weight 9N) = 3000

LF = L / W** **= ?
