Enter the height and the width at half-height into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Peak Area.

## Peak Area Formula

PA = h * w1/2

Variables:

- PA is the Peak Area ()
- h is the height
- w1/2 is the width at half-height

To calculate the Peak Area, multiply the height by the width at half-height.

## How to Calculate Peak Area?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Peak Area.

- First, determine the height.
- Next, determine the width at half-height.
- Next, gather the formula from above = PA = h * w1/2.
- Finally, calculate the Peak Area.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

height = 50

width at half-height = 10
