Enter the mass of CO2 (kg) and the volume of C02 (m^3) into the CO2 Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the CO2 Volume. 

CO2 Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the CO2 Volume. 

Vco2 = Mco2 / Vco2
  • Where Vco2 is the CO2 Volume (kg/m^3)
  • Mco2 is the mass of CO2 (kg) 
  • Vco2 is the volume of C02 (m^3)

To calculate the CO2 density, divide the mass of the CO2 by the volume of the CO2.

How to Calculate CO2 Volume?

The following example problems outline how to calculate CO2 Volume.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the mass of CO2 (kg).
    1. The mass of CO2 (kg) is given as: 3.
  2. Next, determine the volume of C02 (m^3).
    1. The volume of C02 (m^3) is provided as: 4.
  3. Finally, calculate the CO2 Volume using the equation above: 

Vco2 = Mco2 / Vco2

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

Vco2 = 3 / 4 = .75 (kg/m^3)

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

mass of CO2 (kg) = 80

volume of C02 (m^3) = 100

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. 

Vco2 = Mco2 / Vco2 = ?
