Enter the density (kg/m^3), the volume (m^3), and the area (m^2) into the calculator to determine the Pressure From Density. 

Pressure From Density Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Pressure From Density.

Pd = D*V/ A * g

  • Where Pd is the Pressure From Density (Pa)
  • D is the density (kg/m^3) 
  • V is the volume (m^3) 
  • A is the area (m^2) 

How to Calculate Pressure From Density?

The following example problems outline how to calculate the Pressure From Density.

Example Problem #1

  1. First, determine the density (kg/m^3). In this example, the density (kg/m^3) is given as 10 .
  2. Next, determine the volume (m^3). For this problem, the volume (m^3) is given as  50 .
  3. Next, determine the area (m^2). In this case, the area (m^2) is found to be 10.
  4. Finally, calculate the Pressure From Density using the formula above: 

Pd = D*V/ A * g

Inserting the values from above and solving yields: 

Pd = 10*50/ 10 * 9.81 = 490.5 (Pa)


Example Problem #2

Using the same method as above, determine the variables required by the equation. For this example problem, these are provided as:

density (kg/m^3) = 41

volume (m^3) = 16

area (m^2) = 28

Enter these given values yields: 

Pd = 41*16/ 28 * 9.81 = 229.83 (Pa)
