Enter the page height (in), the page width (in), the GSM (grams per square meter of paper), and the number of pages into the Magazine Weight Calculator Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Magazine Weight Calculator. 

Magazine Weight Calculator Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Magazine Weight Calculator. 

MGW = PH/39.37 * PW/39.37 * #P * GSM


  • MGW is the Magazine Weight Calculator (grams)
  • PH is the page height (in) 
  • PW is the page width (in) 
  • #P is the number of pages 
  • GSM is the paper density (grams/m^2)

How to Calculate Magazine Weight Calculator?

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

Example Problem #1

  1. First, determine the page height (in).
    • The page height (in) is calculated to be : 8.
  2. Next, determine the page width (in). 
    • The page width (in) is measured to be: 10.
  3. Next, determine the number of pages. 
    • The number of pages is found to be: 25.
  4. Next, determine the paper density.
    • This is found to be 200 GSM.
  5. Finally, calculate the Magazine Weight Calculator using the formula above: 

MGW = PH/39.37 * PW/39,37 * #P * GSM

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

MGW = 8/39.37 * 10/39.37 * 25 * 200 = 258 (grams)
