## Specific Weight Formula

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

**SPW = W / V**

Variables:

- SPW is the Specific Weight (lbs/ft^3)
- W is the weight (lbs)
- V is the volume (ft^3)

## How to Calculate Specific Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Specific Weight.

- First, determine the weight (lbs).
- Next, determine the volume (ft^3).
- Next, gather the formula from above = SPW = W / V.
- Finally, calculate the Specific 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.

weight (lbs) = 10

volume (ft^3) = 3

SPW = W / V** **= ?
