Enter the propane mass (kg) and the propane density (kg/m^3) into the Propane Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Propane Volume. 

Propane Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Propane Volume. 

PV = PM  / PD
  • Where PV is the Propane Volume (m^3)
  • PM is the propane mass (kg) 
  • PD is the propane density (kg/m^3) 

How to Calculate Propane Volume?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Propane Volume.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the propane mass (kg).
    1. The propane mass (kg) is given as: 500.
  2. Next, determine the propane density (kg/m^3).
    1. The propane density (kg/m^3) is provided as: 493.
  3. Finally, calculate the Propane Volume using the equation above: 

PV = PM  / PD

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

PV = 500  / 493 = 1.014 (m^3)

Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

propane mass (kg) = 600

propane density (kg/m^3) = 493

Entering these values and solving gives:

PV = PM  / PD = 1.21703 (m^3)
