Enter the total length (ft) and the total weight (lbs) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Feet Per Pound. 

Feet Per Pound Formula

FPP = L / W


  • FPP is the Feet Per Pound (ft/lbs)
  • L is the total length (ft)
  • W is the total weight (lbs)

To calculate Feet Per Pound, divide the length in feet by the weight in pounds.

How to Calculate Feet Per Pound?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Feet Per Pound.

  1. First, determine the total length (ft). 
  2. Next, determine the total weight (lbs). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = FPP = L / W.
  4. Finally, calculate the Feet Per Pound.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
