Enter the total weight lost and the total original weight into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Grain Shrinkage.

## Grain Shrinkage Formula

GS = WL / OW * 100

Variables:

- GS is the Grain Shrinkage (%)
- WL is the total weight lost
- OW is the total original weight

To calculate Grain Shrinkage, divide the total weight lost by the original weight, then multiply by 100.

## How to Calculate Grain Shrinkage?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Grain Shrinkage.

- First, determine the total weight lost.
- Next, determine the total original weight.
- Next, gather the formula from above = GS = WL / OW * 100.
- Finally, calculate the Grain Shrinkage.
- 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.

total weight lost = 400

total original weight = 2000
