Enter the pile volume (ft^3) and the pile density (lb/ft^3) into the Pile Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Pile Weight.

## Pile Weight Formula

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

**PW = PV * PD**

Variables:

- PW is the Pile Weight (lbs)
- PV is the pile volume (ft^3)
- PD is the pile density (lb/ft^3)

## How to Calculate Pile Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Pile Weight.

- First, determine the pile volume (ft^3).
- Next, determine the pile density (lb/ft^3).
- Next, gather the formula from above = PW = PV * PD.
- Finally, calculate the Pile Weight.
- 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.

pile volume (ft^3) = 10

pile density (lb/ft^3) = 12

PW = PV * PD** **= ?
