Enter the power output (watts) and the total weight (lbs) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Watts Per Pound. 

Watts Per Pound Formula

WPP = P / W


  • WPP is the Watts Per Pound (watts/lb)
  • P is the power output (watts)
  • W is the total weight (lbs)

To calculate Watts Per Pound, divide the power output in watts by the weight in pounds.

How to Calculate Watts Per Pound?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Watts Per Pound.

  1. First, determine the power output (watts). 
  2. Next, determine the total weight (lbs). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = WPP = P / W.
  4. Finally, calculate the Watts Per Pound.
  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.

power output (watts) = 320

total weight (lbs) = 23
