Enter the length scale factor into the Scale Factor Area Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Scale Factor Area. 

Scale Factor Area Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Scale Factor Area.

ASF = LSF ^2
  • Where ASF is the Scale Factor Area
  • LSF is the length scale factor 

To calculate the scale factor area, square the length scale factor.

How to Calculate Scale Factor Area?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Scale Factor Area.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the length scale factor.
    • The length scale factor is given as: 4.
  2. Finally, calculate the Scale Factor Area using the equation above: 

ASF = LSF ^2

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

ASF = 4^2 = 16:1

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

length scale factor = 2

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

ASF = LSF ^2 = ?
