Enter the snow area (ft2) and the snow depth (ft) into the Snow Load Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Snow Load Weight.

## Snow Load Weight Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Snow Load Weight.

**SW = A * D * 4.5**

Variables:

- SW is the Snow Load Weight (lb)
- A is the snow area (ft2)
- D is the snow depth (ft)

## How to Calculate Snow Load Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Snow Load Weight.

- First, determine the snow area (ft2).
- Next, determine the snow depth (ft).
- Next, gather the formula from above = SW = A * D * 4.5.
- Finally, calculate the Snow Load Weight.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

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

snow area (ft2) = 100

snow depth (ft) = 3

SW = A * D * 4.5** **= ?
