## Mass Absorption Coefficient Formula

MSC = u / p

Variables:

- MSC is the Mass Absorption Coefficient ()
- u is the attenuation coefficient
- p is the mass density

To calculate Mass Absorption Coefficient, divide the attenuation coefficient by the mass density.

## How to Calculate Mass Absorption Coefficient?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Mass Absorption Coefficient.

- First, determine the attenuation coefficient.
- Next, determine the mass density.
- Next, gather the formula from above = MSC = u / p.
- Finally, calculate the Mass Absorption Coefficient.
- 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.

attenuation coefficient = 40

mass density = 20
