Enter the object’s volume (m^3) and the object’s density (kg/m^3) into the Float Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Float Weight.

## Float Weight Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Float Weight.

**FW = V * D * 9.81**

Variables:

- FW is the Float Weight (N)
- V is the object’s volume (m^3)
- D is the object’s density (kg/m^3)

## How to Calculate Float Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Float Weight.

- First, determine the object’s volume (m^3).
- Next, determine the object’s density (kg/m^3).
- Next, gather the formula from above = FW = V * D * 9.81.
- Finally, calculate the Float Weight.
- 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.

object’s volume (kg) = 10

object’s density (kg/m^3) = 20

FW = V * D * 9.81** **= ?
