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

- First, determine the diameter of the pumpkin (D) in inches.
- Next, determine the height of the pumpkin (H) in inches.
- Next, square the diameter of the pumpkin (D^2).
- Next, multiply the squared diameter (D^2) by the height (H).
- Finally, multiply the result by 0.7854 to calculate the weight of the pumpkin (W).
- 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
