Enter the quantity of powder (g) and the cartridge volume (cm^3) into the Load Density Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Load Density.

## Load Density Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Load Density.

LD = P / CV

Variables:

- LD is the Load Density (g/cm^3)
- P is the quantity of powder (g)
- CV is the cartridge volume (cm^3)

To calculate the load density, divide the quantity of powder by the cartridge volume.

## How to Calculate Load Density?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Load Density.

- First, determine the quantity of powder (g).
- Next, determine the cartridge volume (cm^3).
- Next, gather the formula from above = LD = P / CV.
- Finally, calculate the Load Density.
- 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.

quantity of powder (g) = 57

cartridge volume (cm^3) = 9

LD = P / CV** **= ?
