# How to Calculate and Solve for Sensitivity Drift | System Performance Characteristics

The image above represents sensitivity drift. Two essential parameters are needed to calculate sensitivity drift: Drift of Higher Temperature (DT1)Â andÂ Drift of Lower Temperature (DTo).

The formula for calculating sensitivity drift:

S.D = DT1Â – DTo

Where:

S.D = Sensitivity Drift
DT1Â = Drift at Higher Temperature
DToÂ = Drift at Lower Temperature

Let’s solve an example;
Find the sensitivity drift when the drift at higher temperature is 44 and the drift at lower temperature is 11.

This implies that;

DT1 = Drift at Higher Temperature = 44
DTo = Drift at Lower Temperature = 11

S.D = DT1Â – DTo
Then, S.D = 44 – 11
S.D = 33

Therefore, theÂ sensitivity driftÂ isÂ 33.

### Calculating for the Drift at Higher Temperature when the Sensitivity Drift and the Drift at Lower Temperature are Given

DT1 = S.D + DTo

Where;

DT1Â = Drift at Higher Temperature
S.D = Sensitivity Drift
DToÂ = Drift at Lower Temperature

Let’s solve an example;
Find the drift at higher temperature when the sensitivity drift is 20 and the drift at lower temperature is 18.

This implies that;

S.D = Sensitivity Drift = 20
DTo = Drift at Lower Temperature = 18

DT1 = S.D + DTo
So, DT1 = 20 + 18
DT1 = 38

Therefore, theÂ drift at higher temperatureÂ isÂ 38.

### Calculating for the Drift at Lower Temperature when the Sensitivity Drift and the Drift at Higher Temperature are Given

DTo = DT1 – S.D

Where:

DToÂ = Drift at Lower Temperature
S.D = Sensitivity Drift
DT1 = Drift at Higher Temperature

Let’s solve an example;
Find the drift at lower temperature when the sensitivity drift is 10 and the drift at higher temperature is 45.

This implies that;

S.D = Sensitivity Drift = 10
DT1 = Drift at Higher Temperature = 45

DTo = DT1 – S.D
So, DTo = 45 – 10
DTo = 35

Therefore, theÂ drift at lower temperatureÂ isÂ 35.
