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.

1. First, determine the weight of the heavy mineral.
2. Next, determine the weight of the light mineral.
3. Next, gather the formula from above = HR = WHM / WLM * 100.
4. Finally, calculate the Hydraulic Ratio.
5. 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
