## Area to Weight Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Area to Weight.

W = A * CD

Variables:

- W is the Area to Weight (lbs)
- A is the total area of the space or object (ft^2)
- CD is the cross-sectional density (lbs/ft^2)

To calculate the weight from area, multiply the area by the cross-sectional density.

## How to Calculate Area to Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Area to Weight.

- First, determine the total area of the space or object (ft^2).
- Next, determine the cross-sectional density (lbs/ft^2).
- Next, gather the formula from above = W = A * CD.
- Finally, calculate the Area to Weight.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total area of the space or object (ft^2) = 35

cross-sectional density (lbs/ft^2) = 37

W = A * CD** **= ?
