The **Coefficient, Q _{10}** calculator computes the unitless measure of the rate of change of a biological or chemical process as a consequence of increasing the system's temperature by 10 C.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose your preferred temperature units and enter the following:

- (
**t**) - This is the higher temperature_{2} - (
**t**) - This is the lower temperature_{1} - (
**k**) - This is the metabolic rate at t_{2}_{2} - (
**k**) - This is the metabolic rate at t_{1}_{1}

The Q_{10} ratio is computed and returned. It has no units.

### General Information

This Q_{10} coefficient is used to represent nerve conduction velocity and the contraction velocity of muscle fibers. This Q_{10} coefficient is also used to measure the rate of change of chemical reactions.
