## 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)

To calculate the cross weight, sum the left-rear and right-front weights, divide by the car weight, then multiply by 100.

## How to Calculate Cross Weight?

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

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the left-rear weight (lbs).
- The left-rear weight (lbs) is calculated to be : 500.

- Next, determine the right-front weight (lbs).
- The right-front weight (lbs) is measured to be: 600.

- Next, determine the total car weight (lbs).
- The total car weight (lbs) is found to be: 2000.

- 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
