    Lots of factors. If you read your POH you can see it depends on (ZFW, Fuel on board, Weight and balance, and Temperature)

    In your POH there should be a graph.

    I have the published takeoff charts, I was just wondering if there was a generic mathicmatical calculation that took flaps, weight, temp etc... into consideration.

    Nope not that i am aware of sorry, It is different based on many calculations. (in flight simulator world) I don't think it is all that accurate, but it would take into account Weight/fuel/Flaps/ at the very least.
