Enter the total number of knots and the area of fabric (cm^2) into the Knot Density Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Knot Density.

## Knot Density Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Knot Density.

KD = #K / AF

• Where KD is the Knot Density (knots/cm^2)
• #K is the total number of knots
• AF is the area of fabric (cm^2)

## How to Calculate Knot Density?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Knot Density.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total number of knots.
1. The total number of knots is given as: 700.
2. Next, determine the area of fabric (cm^2).
1. The area of fabric (cm^2) is provided as: 20.
3. Finally, calculate the Knot Density using the equation above:

KD = #K / AF

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

KD = 700 / 20 = 35 (knots/cm^2)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

total number of knots = 1045

area of fabric (cm^2) = 501

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

KD = #K / AF = ?
