Enter the plaster area (ft^2) and the plaster thickness (ft) into the Plaster Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Plaster Volume. 

Plaster Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Plaster Volume. 

PV = PA * PT

  • Where PV is the Plaster Volume (ft^3)
  • PA is the plaster area (ft^2) 
  • PT is the plaster thickness (ft) 

How to Calculate Plaster Volume?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Plaster Volume.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the plaster area (ft^2). 
    1. The plaster area (ft^2) is given as: 30.
  2. Next, determine the plaster thickness (ft). 
    1. The plaster thickness (ft) is provided as: 4.
  3. Finally, calculate the Plaster Volume using the equation above: 

PV = PA * PT

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

PV = 30* 4 = 120 (ft^3)

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

plaster area (ft^2) = 5

plaster thickness (ft) = 80

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

PV = PA * PT = ?
