Capital Recovery Factors Formula and Calculator

The future equal payments to repay a present value of money is determined by the capital recovery factor, which is the reciprocal of the present worth factor for a series of equal payments.

Life-cycle cost is calculated by determining the present worth of the cost of an investment. For system alternatives, it is

Where:

where
i = interest rate / 100
n = lifetime in years
