Enter the left-rear weight (lbs), the right-front weight (lbs), and the total car weight (lbs) into the Cross Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Cross Weight.

## Cross Weight Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Cross Weight.

CW = (LR + RF) / CW * 100

Variables:

• CW is the Cross Weight (%)
• LR is the left-rear weight (lbs)
• RF is the right-front weight (lbs)
• CW is the total car weight (lbs)

## How to Calculate Cross Weight?

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Cross Weight.

Example Problem #1

1. First, determine the left-rear weight  (lbs).
• The left-rear weight  (lbs) is calculated to be : 500.
2. Next, determine the right-front weight (lbs).
• The right-front weight (lbs) is measured to be: 600.
3. Next, determine the total car weight (lbs).
• The total car weight (lbs) is found to be: 2000.
4. Finally, calculate the Cross Weight using the formula above:

CW = (LR + RF) / CW * 100

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

CW = (500 + 600) / 2000 * 100 = 55.00 (%)

Example Problem #2

The variables required for this problem are provided below:

left-rear weight  (lbs) = 500

right-front weight (lbs) = 400

total car weight (lbs) = 3000
