Enter the total area and depth of scalpings that you want to cover into the calculator to determine the total weight of scalping aggregate needed.

Scalping Aggregate Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the total weight of Scalping Aggregate needed to cover an area.

W = A/122.704 * D/1.96

  • Where W is the weight of Scalping Aggregate (tons)
  • A is the total area to be covered (ft^2)
  • D is the total depth to be covered (in)

To calculate the total weight of Scalping Aggregate needed, divide the area by 122.704 and the depth by 1.96, and then multiply the two results together.

What is Scalping Aggregate?

Definition:

Scalping Aggregate is a term used in construction and landscaping to describe chopped up rocks that come from a quarry.

How to calculate weight of Scalping Aggregate?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines how to calculate the total weight of Scalping Aggregate you need to cover an area.

First, determine the area you need to cover. In this example, the total area that needs to be covered is 250 ft^2.

Next, determine the depth of coverage. In this case, the depth is determined to be 3 inches.

Finally, calculate the total tonnage of Scalping Aggregate needed to cover the area using the formula above:

W = A/122.704 * D/1.96

W = 250/122.704 * 3/1.96

W = 3.11 tons
