Enter the GSM value, width, and length into the calculator to convert GSM to kilograms. This calculator helps to determine the weight of paper, fabric, or other materials based on their GSM value and size.
GSM to KG Formula
The following formula is used to convert GSM to kilograms.
Weight (kg) = GSM * Width (m) * Length (m) / 1000
- GSM is the grams per square meter value of the material
- Width is the width of the material in meters
- Length is the length of the material in meters
- Weight is the resulting weight of the material in kilograms
To convert GSM to kilograms, multiply the GSM value by the width and length of the material in meters and then divide by 1000 to convert grams to kilograms.
What is GSM?
GSM stands for grams per square meter and is a metric measurement of the weight of paper, fabric, or other materials. It represents the weight of the material per unit area and is used to compare the weights of different types of materials. A higher GSM indicates a heavier and typically thicker material.
How to Calculate Weight in KG from GSM?
The following steps outline how to calculate the weight in kilograms from GSM.
- First, determine the GSM value of the material.
- Next, measure the width of the material in meters.
- Then, measure the length of the material in meters.
- Use the formula above to calculate the weight in kilograms.
- 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.
GSM value of the material = 150 grams per square meter
Width of the material = 1.2 meters
Length of the material = 2.5 meters
