RPM divided by gear ratio x pitch divided by 1056 = theoretical speed

Actual speed divided by Theoretical speed = propeller efficeincy %

100% - propeller efficency % = % slip

Keep in mind that the end result, of slip % will only be as accurate, as the numbers we use in the formula. So if any of your numbers are inaccurate then the slip% is not accurate. Hope this helps.
