Enter the width (in), the length (in), and the millage into the Poly Bag Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Poly Bag Weight.

## Poly Bag Weight Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Poly Bag Weight.

PBW = W* L * M / 15

Variables:

• PBW is the Poly Bag Weight (lbs per thousand bags)
• W is the width (in)
• L is the length (in)
• M is the millage

## How to Calculate Poly Bag Weight?

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

Example Problem #1

1. First, determine the width (in).
• The width (in) is calculated to be : 6.
2. Next, determine the length (in).
• The length (in) is measured to be: 12.
3. Next, determine the millage.
• The millage is found to be: 3.
4. Finally, calculate the Poly Bag Weight using the formula above:

PBW = W* L * M / 15

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

PBW = 6*12* 3 / 15 = 14.4 (lbs per thousand bags)

Example Problem #2

The variables required for this problem are provided below:

width (in) = 10

length (in) = 12

millage = 1.5
