Question: How to Calculate Tornadoes per 10,000 square miles for a state.

I forgot how to calculate tornadoes per 10,000 square miles for a
state.

Do you take the average number of tornadoes per year and
divide it by the square miles of a state.

Example: 1953-2004 Oklahoma has 2938 tornadoes, and
average 57 tornadoes per year, with 8.15 tornadoes per
10,000 square miles. Oklahoma land area is 68,667 square
miles, including water, the total square miles for Oklahoma
is 69,898 square miles.

Also, how to do calculate the number of tornadoes per 10,000 sqaure
miles.

How do you calculate the number of tornado deaths per
10,000 square miles.

Example: Oklahoma had 256 tornado deaths from 1953-2004
average 5 tornado deaths per year. 37 tornado deaths per
10,000 square miles.

Do you take the total tornado deaths and divide it
by the total sqaure miles of a state.

No, that would give you tornadoes/tornado deaths per year per square mile.

You take tornadoes per year, divide that by the total square miles, and then multiply by 10000.

57 / 69898 = 8.1547397636556124638759335031045e-4

8.1547397636556124638759335031045e-4 x 10000 = 8.15
