Enter the total dosage (mg) and the total weight (lbs) into the Dosage Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Dosage Rate.

## Dosage Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Dosage Rate.

**DSR = D/W**

- Where DSR is the Dosage Rate (mg/lb)
- D is the total dosage (mg)
- W is the total weight (lbs)

## How to Calculate Dosage Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Dosage Rate.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total dosage (mg).
- The total dosage (mg) is given as: 50.

- Next, determine the total weight (lbs).
- The total weight (lbs) is provided as: 200.

- Finally, calculate the Dosage Rate using the equation above:

DSR = D/W

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

DSR = 50/200 = .25 (mg/lb)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total dosage (mg) = 60

total weight (lbs) = 150

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