How to Calculate Battery Weight Fraction?
Battery Weight Fraction calculator uses Battery Weight Fraction =
(Range of aircraft/(Battery Specific Energy Capacity*3600*
Efficiency*(1/Acceleration Due To Gravity)*
Maximum Lift to Drag ratio of Aircraft))
to calculate the Battery Weight Fraction, The Battery Weight Fraction formula is used to determine the required battery weight depending on the range and the battery energy capacity. Battery Weight Fraction is denoted by W_{battery}/W_{o} symbol.
How to calculate Battery Weight Fraction using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Battery Weight Fraction, enter Range of aircraft (R), Battery Specific Energy Capacity (E_{battery}), Efficiency (η), Acceleration Due To Gravity (g) & Maximum Lift to Drag ratio of Aircraft (L/D_{max}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Battery Weight Fraction calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.022685 =
(100000/(20*3600*
20*(1/9.8)*
30))
