Enter the moisture shrink factor and the percentage of water removed (%) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Corn Shrinkage. 

Corn Shrinkage Formula



  • CS is the Corn Shrinkage (%)
  • MSF is the moisture shrink factor
  • PWR is the percentage of water removed (%)

To calculate Corn Shrinkage, multiply the moisture shrink factor by the percentage of water removed.

How to Calculate Corn Shrinkage?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Corn Shrinkage.

  1. First, determine the moisture shrink factor. 
  2. Next, determine the percentage of water removed (%). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = CS = MSF * PWR.
  4. Finally, calculate the Corn Shrinkage.
  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.

moisture shrink factor = 1.4

percentage of water removed (%) = 30
