Enter the total power output (kW) and the total weight (lbs) into the KW to Weight Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the KW to Weight Ratio.

## 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)

To calculate the kW to weight ratio, divide the total power output in kW by the weight.

## How to Calculate KW to Weight Ratio?

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

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total power output (kW).
• The total power output (kW) is given as:: 400.
2. Next, determine the total weight (lbs).
• The total weight (lbs) is provided as: 10.
3. 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
