Enter the excavation length, the excavation width, the excavation depth, and the cost per unit volume into Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Excavation Cost.

## Excavation Cost Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Excavation Cost.

EC = EL * EW * ED * CPV

Variables:

- EC is the Excavation Cost ($)
- EL is the excavation length (ft)
- EW is the excavation width (ft)
- ED is the excavation depth (ft)
- CPV is the cost per unit volume of excavation ($/ft^3)

To calculate Excavation Cost, multiply the total volume of excavation by the cost per unit volume to excavate the area.

## How to Calculate Excavation Cost?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Excavation Cost.

- First, determine the excavation length.
- Next, determine the excavation width.
- Next, determine the excavation depth.
- Next, determine the cost per unit volume of excavation.
- Next, gather the formula from above = EC = EL * EW * ED * CPV.
- Finally, calculate the Excavation Cost.
- 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.

excavation length = 5

excavation width = 3

excavation depth = 2

cost per unit volume = 3$/ft^3

EC = EL * EW * ED * CPV =** ** ?
