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:

  1. First, determine the mass (kg).
    1. The mass (kg) is given as: 50.
  2. Next, determine the theoretical density (kg/m^3).
    1. The theoretical density (kg/m^3) is provided as: 10.
  3. 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)
