## Thrust to Weight Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Thrust to Weight Ratio.

**TWR = T / W**

- Where TWR is the Thrust to Weight Ratio (N/kg)
- T is the total thrust (N)
- W is the total weight (kg)

## How to Calculate Thrust to Weight Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Thrust to Weight Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total thrust (N).
- The total thrust (N) is given as: 10000.

- Next, determine the total weight (kg).
- The total weight (kg) is provided as: 500.

- Finally, calculate the Thrust to Weight Ratio using the equation above:

TWR = T / W

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

TWR = 10,000 / 500 = 20 (N/kg)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total thrust (N) = 50000

total weight (kg) = 2000

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