## Maximum Mass Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Maximum Mass.

Mmax = S * A / 9.81

- Where Mmax is the Maximum Mass (kg)
- S is the maximum stress (N/m^2)
- A is the total surface area (m^2)

To calculate a maximum mass, multiply the maximum stress by the surface area, then divide by 9.81.

## How to Calculate Maximum Mass?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Maximum Mass.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the maximum stress (N/m^2).
- The maximum stress (N/m^2) is given as: 425.

- Next, determine the total surface area (m^2).
- The total surface area (m^2) is provided as: 30.

- Finally, calculate the Maximum Mass using the equation above:

Mmax = S * A / 9.81

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

Mmax = 425 * 30 / 9.81 = 1299.69 (kg)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

maximum stress (N/m^2) = 785

total surface area (m^2) = 65

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.
