Enter the burst strength (gf/cm^2) and the grammage (gf/m^2) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Bursting Factor.

## Bursting Factor Formula

BF = BS / G

Variables:

- BS is the Bursting Factor ()
- BS is the burst strength (gf/cm^2)
- G is the grammage (gf/m^2)

To calculate Bursting Factor, divide the burst strength by the grammage.

## How to Calculate Bursting Factor?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Bursting Factor.

- First, determine the burst strength (gf/cm^2).
- Next, determine the grammage (gf/m^2).
- Next, gather the formula from above = BF = BS / G.
- Finally, calculate the Bursting 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.

burst strength (gf/cm^2) = 1.4

grammage (gf/m^2) = 23
