Enter the mass (kg) and the theoretical density (kg/m^3) into the Theoretical Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Theoretical Volume.
Theoretical Volume Formula
The following formula is used to calculate the Theoretical Volume.
Vt = m / d
- Where Vt is the Theoretical Volume (m^3)
- m is the mass (kg)
- d is the theoretical density (kg/m^3)
To calculate a theoretical volume, divide the mass by the theoretical density.
How to Calculate Theoretical Volume?
The following example problems outline how to calculate Theoretical Volume.
Example Problem #1:
- First, determine the mass (kg).
- The mass (kg) is given as: 50.
- Next, determine the theoretical density (kg/m^3).
- The theoretical density (kg/m^3) is provided as: 10.
- Finally, calculate the Theoretical Volume using the equation above:
Vt = m / d
The values given above are inserted into the equation below:
Vt = 50 / 10 = 5 (m^3)
Example Problem #2:
The variables needed for this problem are provided below:
mass (kg) = 60
theoretical density (kg/m^3) = 5
Entering these values and solving gives:
Vt = m / d = 12 (m^3)
