Enter the chipboard length (ft), the chipboard width (ft), and the chipboard thickness (in) into the Chipboard Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Chipboard Weight. 

Chipboard Weight Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Chipboard Weight. 

CHW = CL * CW * CT/12 * 40.5782


  • CHW is the Chipboard Weight (lbs)
  • CL is the chipboard length (ft) 
  • CW is the chipboard width (ft) 
  • CT is the chipboard thickness (in) 

How to Calculate Chipboard Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Chipboard Weight.

  1. First, determine the chipboard length (ft).
  2. Next, determine the chipboard width (ft). 
  3. Next, determine the chipboard thickness (in). 
  4. Next, gather the formula from above = CHW = CL * CW * CT/12 * 40.5782.
  5. Finally, calculate the Chipboard Weight.
  6. 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.

chipboard length (ft) = 4

chipboard width (ft) = 5

chipboard thickness (in) = 2CHW = CL * CW * CT/12 * 40.5782 =  ?
