Enter the elevator safe lifting weight (lbs) and the ${V2} into the Elevator Lift Capacity Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Elevator Lift Capacity.

## Elevator Lift Capacity Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Elevator Lift Capacity.

ELC = LW / 150

Variables:

- ELC is the Elevator Lift Capacity (persons)
- LW is the elevator safe lifting weight (lbs)

To calculate the elevator capacity, divide the lifting capacity by 150 lbs.

Formula assumes an average human weight of 150 lbs.

## How to Calculate Elevator Lift Capacity?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Elevator Lift Capacity.

- First, determine the elevator safe lifting weight (lbs).
- Next, gather the formula from above = ELC = LW / 150.
- Finally, calculate the Elevator Lift Capacity.
- 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.

elevator safe lifting weight (lbs) = 2000

ELC = LW / 150** **= ?
