Enter the total area of the space or object (ft^2) and the cross-sectional density (lbs/ft^2) into the Area to Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Area to Weight. 

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) 

How to Calculate Area to Weight?

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


  1. First, determine the total area of the space or object (ft^2). 
  2. Next, determine the cross-sectional density (lbs/ft^2). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = W = A * CD.
  4. Finally, calculate the Area to Weight.
  5. 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 = ?
