Enter the height above ground the fence will be (ft) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Fence Post Depth.

## Fence Post Depth Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Fence Post Height.

FPH = .40 * AGH

Variables:

- FPH is the Fence Post Depth (ft)
- AGH is the height above ground the fence will be (ft)

To calculate Fence Post Depth, multiply the above ground height by .40.

## How to Calculate Fence Post Depth?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Fence Post Depth.

- First, determine the height above ground the fence will be (ft).
- Next, gather the formula from above = FPH = .40 * AGH.
- Finally, calculate the Fence Post Depth.
- 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.

height above ground the fence will be (ft) = 6

FPH = .40 * AGH** **= ?
