Enter the number of dislocations and the volume into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Dislocation Density.

## Dislocation Density Formula

DLD = D / V

Variables:

- DLD is the Dislocation Density (dislocations/unit volume)
- D is the number of dislocations
- V is the volume

To calculate Dislocation Density, divide the number of dislocations by the total volume.

## How to Calculate Dislocation Density?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Dislocation Density.

- First, determine the number of dislocations.
- Next, determine the volume.
- Next, gather the formula from above = DLD = D / V.
- Finally, calculate the Dislocation Density.
- 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.

number of dislocations = 3.4

volume = 123
