Enter the gravel area (ft^2) and the gravel depth (in) into the Gravel Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Gravel Weight.

## Gravel Weight Formula

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

**GW = GA * GD/12 * 106.1275**

Variables:

- GW is the Gravel Weight (pounds)
- GA is the gravel area (ft^2)
- GD is the gravel depth (in)

## How to Calculate Gravel Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Gravel Weight.

- First, determine the gravel area (ft^2).
- Next, determine the gravel depth (in).
- Next, gather the formula from above = GW = GA * GD/12 * 106.1275.
- Finally, calculate the Gravel 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.

gravel area (ft^2) = 500

gravel depth (in) = 3

GW = GA * GD/12 * 106.1275** **= ?
