Enter the total power (watts), the total length (ft), and the total width (ft) into the Power Density Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Power Density.

## Power Density Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Power Density.

Dp = P / (L*W)
• Where Dp is the Power Density (W/ft^2)
• P is the total power (watts)
• L is the total length (ft)
• W is the total width (ft)

To calculate the power density, divide the power by the product of the length and the width.

## How to Calculate Power Density?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Power Density.

Example Problem #1

1. First, determine the total power (watts).
1. The total power (watts) is given as 300.
2. Next, determine the total length (ft).
1. The total length (ft) is calculated as: 3.
3. Next, determine the total width (ft).
1. The total width (ft) is found to be: 10.
4. Finally, calculate the Power Density using the formula above:

Dp = P / (L*W)

Inserting the values from above yields:

Dp = 300 / (3*10) = 10 (W/ft^2)

Example Problem #2

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total power (watts) = 500

total length (ft) = 1206

total width (ft) = 5

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. Dp = P / (L*W) = (W/ft^2)
