Enter the average number of passengers carried per car or seat, the waiting interval (min), and the total population to be handled during peak time into the Handling Lift Capacity Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Handling Lift Capacity.

## Handling Lift Capacity Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Handling Lift Capacity.

HLC = (300*Q*100)/(T) * P

Variables:

• HLC is the Handling Lift Capacity (cars or seats per min)
• Q is the average number of passengers carried per car or seat
• T is the waiting interval (min)
• P is the total population to be handled during peak time

## How to Calculate Handling Lift Capacity?

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

1. First, determine the average number of passengers carried per car or seat.
2. Next, determine the waiting interval (min).
3. Next, determine the total population to be handled during peak time.
4. Next, gather the formula from above = HLC = (300*Q*100)/(T) * P.
5. Finally, calculate the Handling Lift Capacity.
6. 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.

average number of passengers carried per car or seat = 15

waiting interval (min) = 30

total population to be handled during peak time = 1000

HLC = (300*Q*100)/(T) * P =  ?
