Enter the length, width, and thickness of the rubber along with the density into the calculator to determine the rubber sheet weight.

## Rubber Sheet Weight Formula

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

RSW = L/12*W/12*T/12*D

• Where RSW is the rubber sheet weight (lbs)
• L is the length of the sheet (in)
• W is the width of the sheet (in)
• T is the thickness of the sheet (in)
• D is the density of the sheet (lbs/ft^3)
• The density of common neoprene rubber is 76.79 lbs/ft^3

To calculate the rubber sheet weight, calculate the volume of the sheet, then multiply the result by the density of the rubber.

## What is the weight of rubber sheet?

Neoprene rubber, the most common type of rubber, has a density of 76.79 pounds per cubic foot. The total weight of a sheet would be the volume of the sheet in cubic feet multiplied by this density.

## How to calculate neoprene rubber sheet weight?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines how to calculate a neoprene rubber sheet weight.

First, determine the length, width, and thickness of the sheet.

In this example, these are measured to be:

L = 12 inches

W = 8 inches

T = .500 inches

Next, determine the density of the rubber. In this case, the rubber is standard neoprene rubber which has a density of 76.79 lbs/ft^3.

Finally, calculate the rubber sheet weight using the formula above:

RSW = L/12*W/12*T/12*D

RSW = 12/12*8/12*.5/12*76.79

RSW = 2.133 lbs
