Slip=100%-Efficiency

Efficiency=Observed Speed or Distance / Engine Speed or Distance

Mean Apparent Slip = Distance Run by Propeller - Distance Run by Ship / Distance Run by Propeller

Distance Run by Propeller = Picth X Total Engine Revolutions per day / 1852

I wish this can help those who are in need of this formula.
