## Grid Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Grid Ratio.

GRD = HLS / DS

- Where GRD is the Grid Ratio
- HLS is the height of lead strips (in)
- DS is the distance between strips (in)

To calculate a grid ratio, divide the height of the lead strips by the distance between strips.

## How to Calculate Grid Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Grid Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the height of lead strips (in).
- The height of lead strips (in) is given as: 5.

- Next, determine the distance between strips (in).
- The distance between strips (in) is provided as: 6.

- Finally, calculate the Grid Ratio using the equation above:

GRD = HLS / DS

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

GRD = 5 / 6 = .833

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

height of lead strips (in) = 6

distance between strips (in) = 10

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

GRD = HLS / DS** = ?**
