# How to Calculate and Solve for Dryness Fraction | Enthalpy

The image above represents the dryness fraction. To calculate dryness fraction, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are Mass of Dry Steam Contained in Steam Considered (ms) and Weight of Water Particles in Suspension in Steam Considered (mw).

### The formula for calculating dryness fraction:

x =Â msÂ /Â msÂ + mw

Where the following applies:

x = Dryness Fraction
msÂ = Mass of Dry Steam Contained in Steam Considered
mwÂ = Weight of Water Particles in Suspension in Steam Considered

Let’s solve an example;
Find the dryness fraction when the mass of dry steam contained in steam considered is 21 and the weigth of water particles in suspension in steam considered is 10.

This implies the following:

ms = Mass of Dry Steam Contained in Steam Considered = 21
mw = Weight of Water Particles in Suspension in Steam Considered = 10

x =Â ms/Â msÂ + mw
So, x = 21Â /Â 21 + 10
x =Â 21Â /Â 31
x =Â 0.677

Therefore, theÂ dryness fractionÂ isÂ 0.677.
