Enter the weight of the heavy mineral and the weight of the light mineral into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Hydraulic Ratio.

## Hydraulic Ratio Formula

HR = WHM / WLM

Variables:

- HR is the Hydraulic Ratio
- WHM is the weight of the heavy mineral
- WLM is the weight of the light mineral

To calculate the Hydraulic Ratio, divide the weight of the heavy mineral by the weight of the light mineral.

## How to Calculate Hydraulic Ratio?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Hydraulic Ratio.

- First, determine the weight of the heavy mineral.
- Next, determine the weight of the light mineral.
- Next, gather the formula from above = HR = WHM / WLM * 100.
- Finally, calculate the Hydraulic Ratio.
- 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.

weight of the heavy mineral = 5600

weight of the light mineral = 2000
