## Cycling Power to Weight Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Cycling Power to Weight Ratio.

**CPW = CP / W**

- Where CPW is the Cycling Power to Weight Ratio (kW/lb)
- CP is function threshold power (kW)
- W is the your weight (lbs)

## How to Calculate Cycling Power to Weight Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Cycling Power to Weight Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the function threshold power (kW).
- The function threshold power (kW) is given as: 100.

- Next, determine the your weight (lbs).
- The your weight (lbs) is provided as: 150.

- Finally, calculate the Cycling Power to Weight Ratio using the equation above:

CPW = CP / W

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

CPW = 100 / 150 = .66 (kW/lb)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

function threshold power (kW) = 70

your weight (lbs) = 150

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.

CPW = CP / W** = ?**
