Enter the cable weight (lbs) and the cable length (m) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Cable Weight Per Meter.

## Cable Weight Per Meter Formula

CWM = CW / L

Variables:

- CWM is the Cable Weight Per Meter (lbs/m)
- CW is the cable weight (lbs)
- L is the cable length (m)

To calculate Cable Weight Per Meter, divide the cable weight by the length.

## How to Calculate Cable Weight Per Meter?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Cable Weight Per Meter.

- First, determine the cable weight (lbs).
- Next, determine the cable length (m).
- Next, gather the formula from above = CWM = CW / L.
- Finally, calculate the Cable Weight Per Meter.
- 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.

cable weight (lbs) = 30

cable length (m) = 5
