## KW to Weight Ratio Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the KW to Weight Ratio.

**KWR = P / W**

Variables:

- KWR is the KW to Weight Ratio (kW/lb)
- P is the total power output (kW)
- W is the total weight (lbs)

## How to Calculate KW to Weight Ratio?

The following steps outline how to calculate the KW to Weight Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total power output (kW).
- The total power output (kW) is given as:: 400.

- Next, determine the total weight (lbs).
- The total weight (lbs) is provided as: 10.

- Finally, calculate the KW to Weight Ratio using the equation above:

KWR = P / W

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

KWR = 400 / 10 = 40 (kW/lb)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total power output (kW) = 400

total weight (lbs) = 500
