Enter the total torque (lbf-ft) and the total weight (lbs) into the Torque to Weight Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Torque to Weight Ratio.

## Torque to Weight Ratio Formula

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

TWR = TQ / W

• Where TWR is the Torque to Weight Ratio (lbf-ft/(lbs))
• TQ is the total torque (lbf-ft)
• W is the total weight (lbs)

## How to Calculate Torque to Weight Ratio?

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

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total torque (lb-ft).
• The total torque (lbf-ft) is given as: 500.
2. Next, determine the total weight (lbs).
• The total weight (lbs) is provided as: 1000.
3. Finally, calculate the Torque to Weight Ratio using the equation above:

TWR = TQ / W

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

TWR = 500 / 1000 = .50 (lbf-ft/(lbs))

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total torque (lbf-ft) = 300

total weight (lbs) = 2000
