Enter the amount of degradation (%) and the time (years) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Degradation Rate.

## Degradation Rate Formula

DEGR = DEG / T

Variables:

- DEGR is the Degradation Rate ($/year)
- DEG is the amount of degradation (%)
- T is the time (years)

To calculate the Degradation Rate, divide the amount of degradation by the total time.

## How to Calculate Degradation Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Degradation Rate.

- First, determine the amount of degradation (%).
- Next, determine the time (years).
- Next, gather the formula from above = DEGR = DEG / T.
- Finally, calculate the Degradation Rate.
- 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.

amount of degradation (%) = 25

time (years) = 5
