## Ballistic Coefficient Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Ballistic Coefficient.

Cb = M/ (Cd*A)

Variables:

- Cb is the Ballistic Coefficient ( )
- M is the mass (kg)
- Cd is the drag coefficient
- A is the cross-sectional area (m^2)

To calculate the ballistic coefficient, divide the mass by the product of the drag coefficient and the cross-sectional area.

## How to Calculate Ballistic Coefficient?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Ballistic Coefficient.

- First, determine the mass (kg).
- Next, determine the drag coefficient.
- Next, determine the cross-sectional area (m^2).
- Next, gather the formula from above = Cb = M/ (Cd*A).
- Finally, calculate the Ballistic Coefficient.
- 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.

mass (kg) = 5

drag coefficient = 4

cross-sectional area (m^2) = 7

Cb = M/ (Cd*A) =** ** ?
