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:

- First, determine the total weight of nitrogen (lbs).
- The total weight of nitrogen (lbs) is given as: 40.

- Next, determine the total weight of the bag (lbs).
- The total weight of the bag (lbs) is provided as: 100.

- 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

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

NR = WN / WB * 100** = ?**
