## How to Find Relative Standard Deviation Calculator?

The** relative standard deviation (RSD)** is defined as a type of standard deviation (SD). The relative standard deviation formula helps us understand whether the standard deviation is small or large when compared to the mean for the set of data. The formula to calculate the relative standard deviation is given by

**Relative standard deviation(RSD) = (standard deviation(SD) × 100) / mean**

**Solved Example:**

Find the relative standard deviation(RSD) for the following set of data: {51,38,79,46,57}

**Solution:**

Given n = 5

Relative standard deviation(RSD) = (standard deviation(SD) × 100) / mean

Standard deviation = √(∑(x_{i} - x)^{2} / (n - 1))

Mean(x) = 51 + 38 + 79 + 46 + 57 / 5 = 54.2

Standard deviation = √(51 − 54.2)^{2} + (38 − 54.2)^{2} + (79 − 54.2)^{2} + (46 − 54.2)^{2} + (57 − 54.2)^{2} / (5 - 1)

= 15.5

Relative standard deviation = (15.5 × 100) / 54.2

= 28.62%

Similarly, you can try the calculator to find the relative standard deviation for the following dataset:

- 21,14,16,8,2,4,15,8
- 25,1,7,15,6,14,14,25,7
