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.

1. First, determine the change in drift between point X and point X-1.
2. Next, determine the height from X to X-1.
3. Next, gather the formula from above = D = d / H.
4. Finally, calculate the Story Drift.
5. 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 = ?
