Enter the total weight (kg) and the cost per unit weight ($/kg) into the EP Cost Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the EP Cost. 

EP Cost Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the EP Cost. 


  • Where EPC is the EP Cost ($)
  • W is the total weight (kg) 
  • CPW is the cost per unit weight ($/kg) 

How to Calculate EP Cost?

The following example problems outline how to calculate EP Cost.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total weight (kg). The total weight (kg) is given as 2.5.
  2. Next, determine the cost per unit weight ($/kg). The cost per unit weight ($/kg) is provided as 5.00.
  3. Finally, calculate the EP Cost using the equation above: 


The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

EPC = 2.5 * 5 = 7.50 ($)

Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total weight (kg) = 6.00

cost per unit weight ($/kg) = 8.00

Entering these values and solving gives:

EPC = W * CPW = 48.00 ($)
