Enter the total mass (kg) into the Equivalent Solar Mass Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Equivalent Solar Mass.

## Equivalent Solar Mass Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Equivalent Solar Mass.

**SM = M / 1.98855*10^30**

- Where SM is the Equivalent Solar Mass (solar masses)
- M is the total mass (kg)

To calculate a solar mass, divide the total mass by 1.98855 times 10 to the 30th power.

## How to Calculate Equivalent Solar Mass?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Equivalent Solar Mass.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total mass (kg).
- The total mass (kg) is given as: 150e40.

- Next, determine the ${V2}.
- The ${V2} is provided as: ${number2}.

- Finally, calculate the Equivalent Solar Mass using the equation above:

SM = M / 1.98855*10^30

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

SM = 150e32 / (1.98855*10^30) = 7543.184 (solar masses)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

total mass (kg) = 174e31

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.
