Enter the total ice volume (in^3) into the Ice Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Ice Weight. 

Ice Weight Formula

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

IW = IV * .033128


  • IW is the Ice Weight (lbs)
  • IV is the total ice volume (in^3) 

To calculate ice weight, multiply the volume of ice (in^3) by .033128.

How to Calculate Ice Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Ice Weight.

  1. First, determine the total ice volume (in^3). 
  2. Next, gather the formula from above = IW = IV * .033128.
  3. Finally, calculate the Ice Weight.
  4. 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.

total ice volume (in^3) = 30

IW = IV * .033128 = ?
