## Displacement to Length Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Displacement to Length Ratio.

**DLR = D / L * 100**

- Where DLR is the Displacement to Length Ratio (%)
- D is the total displacement
- L is the total length

## How to Calculate Displacement to Length Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Displacement to Length Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total displacement.
- The total displacement is given as: 3.

- Next, determine the total length.
- The total length is provided as: 6.

- Finally, calculate the Displacement to Length Ratio using the equation above:

DLR = D / L * 100

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

DLR = 3 / 6 * 100 = 50 (%)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total displacement = 8

total length = 9

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

DLR = D / L * 100** = ?**
