## Gate Weight Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Gate Weight.

GW = W * H * G

Variables:

- GW is the Gate Weight (lbs)
- W is the gate width (ft)
- H is the gate height (ft)
- G is the gate weight grade (lbs/ft^2)

## How to Calculate Gate Weight?

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Gate Weigth.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the gate width (ft).
- The gate width (ft) is calculated to be : 6.

- Next, determine the gate height (ft).
- The gate height (ft) is measured to be: 3.

- Next, determine the gate weight grade (lbs/ft^2).
- The gate weight grade (lbs/ft^2) is found to be: 20.

- Finally, calculate the Gate Weight using the formula above:

GW = W * H * G

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

GW = 6 * 3 * 20 = 360.00 (lbs)

**Example Problem #2**

The variables required for this problem are provided below:

gate width (ft) = 3

gate height (ft) = 4

gate weight grade (lbs/ft^2) = 50

Test your knowledge and check your answer with the calculator.

GW = W * H * G =** **(lbs)
