The moisture content is illustrated by the image below.

To compute for moisture content, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **Weight of the Sample before Drying (G)** and **Weight of the Sample after Drying (G _{1}).**

The formula for calculating moisture content:

w = 100(^{(G – G1)}/_{G})

Where:

w = Moisture Content

G = Weight of the Sample before Drying

G_{1} = Weight of the Sample after Drying

Let’s solve an example;

Find the moisture content when the weight of the sample before drying is 40 and the weight of the sample after drying is 10.

This implies that;

G = Weight of the Sample before Drying = 40

G_{1} = Weight of the Sample after Drying = 10

w = 100(^{(G – G1)}/_{G})

w = 100(^{(40 – 10)}/_{40})

w = 100(^{30}/_{40})

w = 100(0.75)

w = 75

Therefore, the **moisture content **is **75%.**

Nickzom Calculator – **The Calculator Encyclopedia** is capable of calculating the moisture content.

The screenshot below displays the page or activity to enter your values, to get the answer for the moisture content according to the respective parameter which is the **Weight of the Sample before Drying (G)** and **Weight of the Sample after Drying (G _{1}).**

Now, enter the values appropriately and accordingly for the parameters as required by the **Weight of the Sample before Drying (G) **is **40** and **Weight of the Sample after Drying (G _{1})** is

**10**.

Finally, Click on Calculate

As you can see from the screenshot above, **Nickzom Calculator**– The Calculator Encyclopedia solves for the moisture content and presents the formula, workings and steps too.
