Enter the total weight (grams) and the total number of seeds into the Thousand Seed Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Thousand Seed Weight.

## Thousand Seed Weight Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Thousand Seed Weight.

TSW = W / #S * 1000

Variables:

• TSW is the Thousand Seed Weight (grams per 1000 seeds)
• W is the total weight (grams)
• #S is the total number of seeds

## How to Calculate Thousand Seed Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Thousand Seed Weight.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total weight (grams).
• The total weight (grams) is given as:: 400.
2. Next, determine the total number of seeds.
• The total number of seeds is provided as: 500.
3. Finally, calculate the Thousand Seed Weight using the equation above:

TSW = W / #S * 1000

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

TSW = 400 / 500 * 1000 = 800 (grams per 1000 seeds)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total weight (grams) = 200

total number of seeds = 2000
