Enter the change in drift between point X and point X-1 and the height from X to X-1 into the Story Drift Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Story Drift.

## Story Drift Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Story Drift.

**D = d / H**

Variables:

- D is the Story Drift ( )
- d is the change in drift between point X and point X-1
- H is the height from X to X-1

## How to Calculate Story Drift?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Story Drift.

- First, determine the change in drift between point X and point X-1.
- Next, determine the height from X to X-1.
- Next, gather the formula from above = D = d / H.
- Finally, calculate the Story Drift.
- 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.

change in drift between point X and point X-1 = 1.25

height from X to X-1 = 8

D = d / H** **= ?
