The crosslinking density of polymer can be quantitatively calculated by the Flory-Rehner equation using the swelling experimental data and the lattice constant ${\beta}_1$ of interaction parameter (${\chi}$) in this equation should be chosen have used cautiously. This ${\beta}_1$ is the experimental data by rule of thumb, and researchers have used little different values respectively. Generally, the average molecular weight between crosslink points $M_c$ in the Flory-Rehner equation and the Mooney-Rivlin equation have the same value, and ${\beta}_1$ can be calculated when the $M_c$ in the Flory-Rehner equation is given. Therefore, in this research, firstly we calculated the $M_c$ using the selected ${\beta}_1$ (=0.34) and the swelling experimental data of 1,2,3-triazole polymer from the Flory-Rehner equation, secondly the $M_c$ from the Mooney-Rivlin equation is calculated by the tensile experimental data, and finally two $M_c$ were compared. As a result, two $M_c$ values were almost the same, and it was proved that the ${\beta}_1$ (=0.34) was selected properly.
