# How to Calculate and Solve for Casting Yield | Solidification of Metals

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
Mc = Net Mass of Casting
Mmc = 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;

Mc = Net Mass of Casting = 21
Mmc = 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

Mc = y x Mmc / 100%

Where:

Mc = Net Mass of Casting
y = Casting Yield
Mmc = 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
Mmc = Mass of Metal Charge = 2

Mc = y x Mmc / 100%
That is, Mc = 10 x 2 / 100%
Mc = 20 / 100%
Mc = 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

Mmc = Mc x 100% / y

Where:

Mmc = Mass of Metal Charge
y = Casting Yield
Mc = 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
Mc = Net Mass of Casting = 4

Mmc = Mc x 100% / y
That is, Mmc = 4 x 100% / 12
Mmc = 400% / 12
Mmc = 33.3

Therefore, the mass of metal charge is 33.3%
