The image above represents casting yield. To calculate casting yield, two essential parameters are needed: the Net Mass of Casting (Mc) and Mass of Metal Charge (Mmc).

**The formula for calculating casting yield:**

y = ^{Mc} / _{Mmc} x 100%

Where:

y = Casting Yield

M_{c} = Net Mass of Casting

M_{mc} = Mass of Metal Charge

Let’s solve an example;

Find the casting yield when the net mass of casting is 21 and the mass of metal charge is 7.

This implies that;

M_{c} = Net Mass of Casting = 21

M_{mc} = Mass of Metal Charge = 7

y = ^{Mc} / _{Mmc} x 100%

So, y = ^{21}/ _{7} x 100%

y = 3 x 100%

y = **300%**

Therefore, the **casting yield **is **300%.**

**Calculating the Net Mass of Casting when the Casting Yield and the Mass of Metal Casting are Given**

M_{c} = ^{y x Mmc} / _{100%}

Where:

M_{c} = Net Mass of Casting

y = Casting Yield

M_{mc} = Mass of Metal Charge

Let’s solve an example;

Find the net mass of casting when the casting yield is 10 and the mass of metal charge is 2.

This implies that;

y = Casting Yield = 10

M_{mc} = Mass of Metal Charge = 2

M_{c} = ^{y x Mmc} / _{100%}

That is, M_{c} = ^{10 x 2} / _{100%}

M_{c} = ^{20} / _{100%}

M_{c} = 0.2

Therefore, the **net mass of casting **is **0.2%.**

**Calculating the Mass of Metal Casting when the Casting Yield and the Net Mass of Casting are Given**

M_{mc} = ^{Mc x 100%} / _{y}

Where:

M_{mc} = Mass of Metal Charge

y = Casting Yield

M_{c} = Net Mass of Casting

Let’s solve an example;

Find the mass of metal charge when the casting yield is 12 and the net mass of casting is 4.

This implies that;

y = Casting Yield = 12

M_{c} = Net Mass of Casting = 4

M_{mc} = ^{Mc x 100%} / _{y}

That is, M_{mc} = ^{4 x 100%} / _{12}

M_{mc} = ^{400%} / _{12}

M_{mc} = 33.3

Therefore, the **mass of metal charge **is **33.3%**
