Enter the wet weight and the weight after drying of an object into the calculator to determine the moisture content.

## Moisture Content Formula

The following formula can be used to calculate a moisture content.

MC = (w – d) / w * 100

- Where MC is the moisture content (%)
- w is the weight while wet
- d is the weight while dry

## FAQ

**What is a moisture content?**

Moisture content is a percentage of the total weight of an object that is due to moisture within the object.

## Moisture Content Example

How to calculate moisture content?

**First, determine the weight of the object while wet.**Using a scale, we find the object to be 20g while wet.

**Next, determine the weight while dry.**After drying the object, we weigh it again and find that the weight is 10g.

**Finally, calculate the moisture content.**Using the formula we find the moisture content to be 50%.
