Select the size of the barbed wire and the length into the calculator to determine the barbed wire weight.

## Barbed Wire Weight Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Barbed Wire Weight.

BWW = W/L * L

• Where BWW is the barbed wire weight (lbs)
• W/L is the weight per unit length of the barbed wire. This is dependent on the size of the barbed wire and has the following values.
• 2 X 2 = .082 lbs/ft
• 13 x 13 = .0974 lbs/ft
• 12 x 12 = .110 lbs/ft
• 14 x 14 = .062 lbs/ft

## What is the weight of barbed wire ?

Definition:

The weight of the barbed wire depends on the thickness and length of the wire, as well as the density of the wire.

## How to Calculate Barbed Wire Weight?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate Barbed Wire Weight.

First, determine the wire size. In this case, we will use 13×13 wire. This is a linear density of .0974 lbs/ft.

Next, determine the length of the wire in feet. For this example, the length is measured to be 500 ft.

Finally, calculate the barbed wire weight using the formula above:

BWW = W/L * L

BWW = .0974 * 500

BWW = 48.7 lbs
