## Net Mass Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Net Mass.

NM = GM - TM

- Where NM is the Net Mass (kg)
- GM is the gross mass (kg)
- Tm is the tare mass (kg)

To calculate the net mass, subtract the tare mass from the gross mass.

## How to Calculate Net Mass?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Net Mass.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the gross mass (kg).
- The gross mass (kg) is given as: 1550.

- Next, determine the tare mass (kg).
- The tare mass (kg) is provided as: 750.

- Finally, calculate the Net Mass using the equation above:

NM = GM – TM

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

NM = 1550 – 750 = 800 (kg)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

gross mass (kg) = 6000

tare mass (kg) = 2350

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

NM = GM – TM** = ?**
