Enter the nip width ratio into the Nip Load Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Nip Load.

## Nip Load Formula

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

NL = NW^2

Variables:

- NL is the Nip Load ( )
- NW is the nip width ratio

To calculate the nip load, squared the nip width ratio.

## How to Calculate Nip Load?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Nip Load.

- First, determine the nip width ratio.
- Next, gather the formula from above = NL = NW^2.
- Finally, calculate the Nip Load.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
