Enter the rate of decay (%) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Decay Factor.

## Decay Factor Formula

DF = 1-DR/100

Variables:

• DF is the Decay Factor ()
• DR is the rate of decay (%)

To calculate Decay Factor, subtract the result of the rate of decay over 100 from 1.

## How to Calculate the Decay Factor?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Decay Factor.

1. First, determine the rate of decay (%).
2. Next, gather the formula from above = DF = 1-DR/100.
3. Finally, calculate the Decay Factor.
4. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
