Enter the total weight of helium and the total cost of the helium purchased into the calculator to determine the helium cost per weight.

## Helium Cost Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the helium cost per unit weight.

HC = TC / TW

• Where HC is the helium cost per unit weight (\$/(lbs,kg,etc))
• TC is the total cost of the helium (\$)
• TW is the total weight of the helium (lbs,kg,etc)

To calculate the cost of helium per unit weight, simply divide the total cost by the total weight purchased.

## What is the cost of helium?

Definition:

Helium is typically price on a cost per unit weight basis. The actual cost of helium varies every day, but in recent times the cost of helium has been in the range of \$30-\$70 per kilogram of helium.

## How to Calculate Helium Cost Per Pound?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate Helium Cost.

First, determine the total cost of the helium purchase. In this example, a company has purchased a large sum of helium that came out to \$500,000.00.

Next, determine the total weight of the helium received. This company received a total weight of 10,000 kg of helium.

Finally, calculate the cost per kg of helium using the formula above:

HC = TC / TW

HC = 500,000 / 10,000

HC = \$50/kg
