**Formula:**`S = s / (w × 10)`

## Introduction to Sedimentation Rate

The Svedberg equation is used to calculate the sedimentation rate of a particle in a centrifuge. In the formula, ** S** represents the sedimentation rate,

**is the sedimentation coefficient, and**

*s***is the angular velocity. The result is expressed in Svedberg units (S).**

*w*## Parameter usage:

`s`

= sedimentation coefficient`w`

= angular velocity

## Example valid values:

`s`

= 80,`w`

= 2

## Output:

`S`

= sedimentation rate in Svedberg units (S)

## Data validation

The sedimentation coefficient (`s`

) should be a positive number, and the angular velocity (`w`

) should be a positive number representing rotations per minute.

## Summary

This calculator helps to compute the sedimentation rate of a particle in a centrifuge, based on the sedimentation coefficient and angular velocity.
