Enter the total weight of nitrogen (lbs) and the total weight of the bag (lbs) into the Nitrogen Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Nitrogen Rate.

## Nitrogen Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Nitrogen Rate.

NR = WN / WB * 100

• Where NR is the Nitrogen Rate (%)
• WN is the total weight of nitrogen (lbs)
• WB is the total weight of the bag (lbs)

## How to Calculate Nitrogen Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Nitrogen Rate.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total weight of nitrogen (lbs).
• The total weight of nitrogen (lbs) is given as: 40.
2. Next, determine the total weight of the bag (lbs).
• The total weight of the bag (lbs) is provided as: 100.
3. Finally, calculate the Nitrogen Rate using the equation above:

NR = WN / WB * 100

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

NR = 40 / 100 * 100 = 40.00 (%)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total weight of nitrogen (lbs) = 5

total weight of the bag (lbs) = 10
