The image above represents total mass determination.

To compute for total mass determination, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **Maximum Gravity (Δg _{max}) **and

**Half Width (x**

_{1/2}).The formula for calculating total mass determination:

M ≃ 255Δg_{max}(x_{1/2})²

Where:

M = Total Mass

Δg_{max} = Maximum Gravity

x_{1/2} = Half Width

Let’s solve an example;

Find the total mass determination when the maximum gravity is 10 and the half width is 6.

This implies that;

Δg_{max} = Maximum Gravity = 10

x_{1/2} = Half Width = 6

M ≃ 255Δg_{max}(x_{1/2})²

M ≃ 255(10)(6)²

M ≃ 255(10)(36)

M ≃ 91800

Therefore, the **total mass determination **is **91800 kg.**
