## Acoustic Foam Panels Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the number of Acoustic Foam Panels needed for a room.

#P = (L*W*H) / PS/66.66 * C

- Where #P is the number of acoustic foam panels
- L is the length of the room covered by acoustic foam (ft)
- W is the width of the room covered by acoustic foam (ft)
- H is the height of the room covered by acoustic foam (ft)
- PS is the panel area of the acoustic foam (ft^2)
- C is the percentage coverage factor
- Typical coverages are 10%, 15%, and 25%

To calculate how many Acoustic Foam Panels are needed for a room, divide the volume of the room by the area of the panels, then multiply by the ratio of coverage desired.

## What is an Acoustic Foam?

Definition:

Acoustic Foam is a material that is placed on walls and ceiling to reduce sound echoing in large rooms. In other words, it’s a type of sound insulation.

## How to determine how many Acoustic Foam Panels I need?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines how to calculate the amount of acoustic panels needed for a room.

First, determine the length, width, and height of the room.

In this example, the length, width, and height are given is 20 ft, 40ft, and 8 ft respectively.

Next, determine the length and width of the panel. The panels to be used for this are 24″X24″ = 2’X2′.

Next, calculate the area of the panels. 2×2 panels have an area of 4 square feet.

Next, determine the desired coverage ratio. In this case, we want a 25% coverage.

Finally, calculate the Acoustic Foam Panels needed using the formula above:

#P = (L*W*H) / PS * C

#P = (20*40*8) / 4/6.66 * .25

#P = 60
