**Load**and Travel Formulas

**calculate**the distance traveled of your

**spring**you must divide the

**load**by the

**spring**rate. On the other hand, to

**calculate**the working

**loads**, you must multiply the distance traveled by the

**spring**rate.

Similarly, it is asked, what is the load of a spring?

**Spring Load**. You have a **spring** with a free length of 5 inches and your **spring** rate is of 7.5 pounds of force per inch (lbf/in). This **spring** needs to reach a solid height of 3 inches, therefore having to travel 2 inches.

Beside above, how do you determine spring rate? To **test** the **spring rate**, the **spring** is placed into a **spring rate** tester, like shown above, and is pre-compressed one inch (or millimeters if you're using that measurement) and then compressed further to get the measurement for the next inch of compression.

Also Know, how is load rate calculated?

**Calculate** the hydraulic loading **rate** with the formula: Hydraulic loading **rate** = Design flow (gal/day) / Area (feet ^2). Design flow is the volume of waste water per day. **Calculate** the organic loading with the formula: Organic matter = (BOD5 (mg/l) * 3.785 l/gal) / 453,600 mg/lb.

What is the formula for calculating spring load?

**To calculate** the distance traveled of your **spring** you must divide the **load** by the **spring** rate. On the other hand, **to calculate** the working **loads**, you must multiply the distance traveled by the **spring** rate.
