Enter the design load limit (N) and the safety factor into the Working Load Limit Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Working Load Limit.

## Working Load Limit Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Working Load Limit.

WLL = DLL / SF

Variables:

- WLL is the Working Load Limit (N)
- DLL is the design load limit (N)
- SF is the safety factor

To calculate the working load limit, divide the design load limit by the safety factor.

## How to Calculate Working Load Limit?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Working Load Limit.

- First, determine the design load limit (N).
- Next, determine the safety factor.
- Next, gather the formula from above = WLL = DLL / SF.
- Finally, calculate the Working Load Limit.
- 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.

design load limit (N) = 5,000

safety factor = 2.5

WLL = DLL / SF** **= ?
