Enter the total number of words and the total number of pages into the Word Density Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Word Density. 

Word Density Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Word Density. 

WD = #W / #P

  • Where WD is the Word Density (words/page)
  • #W is the total number of words 
  • #P is the total number of pages 

How to Calculate Word Density?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Word Density.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total number of words. 
    1. The total number of words is given as: 3000.
  2. Next, determine the total number of pages. 
    1. The total number of pages is provided as: 60.
  3. Finally, calculate the Word Density using the equation above: 

WD = #W / #P

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

WD =3000 / 60 = 50 (words/page)

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

total number of words = 1500

total number of pages = 23

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. 

WD = #W / #P = ?
