## User Guide

This calculator is used to determine the total length of an item from the total mass measured with a specified linear mass density. Along with the calculated total length, a conversion scale showing a range of mass versus length with a fixed linear mass density, will also be drawn to relate to each calculated result.

### Formula

The formula used by this calculator to determine mass from length and linear density is:

L = m / λ_{m}

#### Symbols

- L = Total length
- m = Total mass
- λ
_{m}= Linear mass density

### Total Mass

Enter the total mass of an item and select the applicable mass measurement units.

### Linear Mass Density

Enter the amount of mass per unit length of the item which has been measured, and select the appropriate units for mass and unit length.

### Total Length

This is the total length of the item measured, and the value is calculated once you have selected the required length measurement unit.
