Enter the carpet area (ft^&2) and the carpet density (lbs/ft^2) into the Carpet Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Carpet Weight. 

Carpet Weight Formula

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



  • CARP is the Carpet Weight (lbs)
  • CA is the carpet area (ft^&2) 
  • CD is the carpet density (lbs/ft^2) 

To calculate a carpet weight, multiply the carpet area by the carpet density.

How to Calculate Carpet Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Carpet Weight.

  1. First, determine the carpet area (ft^&2). 
  2. Next, determine the carpet density (lbs/ft^2). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = CARP = CA * CD.
  4. Finally, calculate the Carpet 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.

carpet area (ft^&2) = 30

carpet density (lbs/ft^2) = 2.5

CARP = CA * CD = ?
