Enter the diameter and height of the pumpkin into the calculator to determine the weight. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Pumpkin Weight Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the weight of a pumpkin.

W = D^2 * H * 0.7854

Variables:

• W is the weight of the pumpkin (lbs) D is the diameter of the pumpkin (inches) H is the height of the pumpkin (inches)

To calculate the weight of a pumpkin, square the diameter of the pumpkin, then multiply the result by the height of the pumpkin. Multiply the final result by 0.7854 to get the weight of the pumpkin.

What is a Pumpkin Weight?

A pumpkin weight refers to the mass or heaviness of a pumpkin. This can vary greatly depending on the type of pumpkin and its size. Typically, pumpkins used for carving and decoration during Halloween can weigh between 6 to 18 pounds, while larger varieties used for competitions can weigh several hundred pounds. The current world record for the heaviest pumpkin is over 2,600 pounds.

How to Calculate Pumpkin Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Pumpkin Weight using the formula: W = D^2 * H * 0.7854

1. First, determine the diameter of the pumpkin (D) in inches.
2. Next, determine the height of the pumpkin (H) in inches.
3. Next, square the diameter of the pumpkin (D^2).
4. Next, multiply the squared diameter (D^2) by the height (H).
5. Finally, multiply the result by 0.7854 to calculate the weight of the pumpkin (W).
6. After inserting the values for D and H into the formula and performing the calculations, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

Diameter of the pumpkin (D) = 10 inches

Height of the pumpkin (H) = 8 inches
