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) 

To calculate the EP cost, multiply the total weight by the cost per unit weight.

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 ($)
