## Drywall Weight Formula

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

**DW = A * T/12 * 38.205**

Variables:

- DW is the Drywall Weight (lbs)
- A is the total square footage of drywall (ft^2)
- T is the drywall thickness (in)

## How to Calculate Drywall Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Drywall Weight.

- First, determine the total square footage of drywall (ft^2).
- Next, determine the drywall thickness (in).
- Next, gather the formula from above = DW = A * T/12 * 38.205.
- Finally, calculate the Drywall Weight.
- 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.

total square footage of drywall (ft^2) = 30

drywall thickness (in) = .375

DW = A * T/12 * 38.205** **= ?
